We often urge our fellow Hardin County residents to pitch in and make a difference in their community. Shop local. Run for office. Vote in local elections. Volunteer your time. Give to worthy causes. Support area students. Advocate for the issues that make a difference. We encourage you to do those things because it makes a difference in your life and in the lives of the people around you. Today, we come to you with another request that can have just as much impact. Wear a face mask.
For some reason, the act of wearing a face covering - or not wearing a face covering - has become political. Despite the fact that research has proven that when more people wear face coverings, the spread of the coronavirus is slowed.
