STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- With a statewide mask order starting on Monday businesses across north Mississippi are already ordering people to wear a mask before entering.
“I think it’s a good thing, I wear mine daily," said Wilburn.
DMVs across the state are high traffic areas with numerous people coming in and out every day.
With so much foot traffic people in the community like Dector Wilburn feels it’s important for everyone to wear a mask.
“First of all, if everybody hasn’t been tested certain people may be coming in and out that don’t know they have it. To protect me from you, it’s important that we wear a mask,” said Wilburn.
Wilburn says at this time wearing a mask is all about considering the lives of others and working together to save lives.
“Look around and you see the people that are sick and have been infected by the Covid-19 and it could’ve been prevented just because that they were around would’ve had a mask on,” said Wilburn.
