Longtime Princeton Resident Disappointed That Many People Are Not Wearing Masks

To the Editor:
Joe Small and I have lived in Princeton for 50 years, as of June 2020. I have always been really happy that we landed here, except I must now say, that as of today, I am not so sure. Because I guess that the Golden Rule no longer applies during this novel coronavirus crisis.

We don masks every time we go past our driveway and plan to be out and about. It seems that our neighbors in Princeton do not act in the same way. We were out today, and I would say that 95 percent of the people we saw were not wearing masks, and 0 percent of the young people! What a great disappointment in this so-called enlightened community. Shame! Is it that I care more about you than you care about me? I am truly appalled. Please tell me I’m wrong.
