“Dear PoPville,

I’m just writing in about my experience with healthcare workers to see if anyone else has experienced this, as well. I went to get a blood test at labcorp and the phlebotomists at the front desk took her mask OFF to talk to me. Then last week, I went to my allergist to get some tests done and the doctor walked in with his mask below his mouth. Today, I went to CVS to pick up some meds, and the pharmacist had his mask below his chin the entire 20 min I was in line.

I’m high-risk and so are many in my family. I’ve been extremely cautious and it’s so disappointing to see this behavior the few times I’ve needed to venture out of my house. No wonder people aren’t wearing masks when they see the very people who should be role models not doing it either. Such a shame.”
