“Being from Wisconsin, I know that our sense of community is our number one strength. I also know that because we care for each other, we can beat this pandemic together. I may not know everyone in the grocery store, or around me on the street, but I still care about them. That’s the Wisconsin way. And right now is the most important time to show our Wisconsin values: By wearing a mask we are telling each other that we are willing to take the extra step, to go out of our way, to ensure the safety of those around us. Because I care for those around me, I pledge to wear a mask so that we can go back to normal sooner. Together we can beat this pandemic.”
“Community Is Our Strength”
So let’s lean into it, says Wisconsinte Yogev Ben-Yitschak. We may not know everyone in the store, or recognize every face we pass on the street, but we know that we’re all working together towards a common goal. That’s why Yogev is committed to wearing his mask in public: because when he ensures his own safety, he ensures the safety of those around him.
