Don’t Forget to Wear Your Mask
This photo is a string of emails sent to me, a Springfield College student, in my sophomore year here.
This displays emails from the Division of Student, the Department of Public Safety, the Counseling Center, the Division of Inclusion, Lauren Mahler who is the community director of Alumni Hall, Residence Life, and Visual and Performing arts.
I chose this string of emails because I feel like in the future masks won’t be something that’s thought about nearly as much as they are now. Seeing how important and absolutely mandatory they were to allow us to go to school might be shocking and interesting to some people. Personally I thought masks would’ve been a thing of the past by now, but with the pandemic still in full swing, they’re still mandatory. We’ve been wearing them for such a long time that it’s become part of the routine to even leave my room. I’ve gotten used to every email including “wear your mask”, so it’s not bothersome anymore, just discouraging that it’s lasted so long.
