As we enter this new period of eased restrictions, there may be times when we feel comfortable without a mask and other times when we feel wearing one is the safer choice.

It’s still recommended to wear a mask around those whose vaccination status you don’t know and in crowded spaces. So, having dinner with a group of close friends who are vaccinated may be a time you drop the mask, but when shopping at a busy store may be a time you opt to wear one.

As we each make our choices of when to wear a mask and not, let’s remember to treat those who make other choices with aloha.
