To the Editor:

Supermarkets are one of the best places to find COVID-19. They are losing business due to people's fears.

Masks would help in crowds, but ignorant people refuse to mask. Local management might be willing to require masks, but their corporate overlords do not allow local control.

Gov. Scott needs to stop listening to the Vermont State Chamber of Commerce types and require masks in high-volume stores and other venues.

Small businesses may voluntarily require masks to enter. They should prominently post if masks are required or not so customers can decide to enter or not.

Geoffrey Cobden,
