Governor doesn’t follow own advice

To the editor:
I read that Governor Northam is requiring everyone to wear a face mask in public, especially when entering businesses.
He announced his decision in his Tuesday news conference.

Our governor should be an expert on masks and/or face paint, given the photo on his page in his college annual.
I’m 75 and still work a 40-hour week. No, I don’t want to get sick, but wearing a mask interferes with my work.
I saw a picture of him on the beach with a group of people and no mask! It seems he doesn’t follow his own advice, so why should anyone?
Personally, I don’t need Northam dictating to me how to live my life. I believe it is up to each individual to make their own decision as to what is best for them and their families.
