As we approach month four of the pandemic, the team at Schwartz Media Strategies, like many other companies, has adapted to a new norm. Perfecting our hand-washing regimens, maintaining social distance in public and keeping a face mask handy at any given time have all become prominent in our lives. Individually, we’re taking extra precautions to maintain our own health and protect the ones we love. This is only being reinforced by agencies such as the Miami Downtown Development Authority and Coconut Grove Business Improvement District through efforts to encourage local communities to protect themselves and those around them.
We asked each of our team members why they wear a mask. Here’s what they said:
I wear a mask to help my kids understand how their actions affect the health of others.
I wear a mask so my kids don’t miss out on the benefits of having a traditional school experience.
I wear a mask so that I can hug my parents.
I wear a mask to save lives.
I wear one so that I can protect my baby and family.
So I can visit my family’s hometown in Spain.
I wear a mask so my husband and I can finally go on our honeymoon.
I wear a mask for my daughter to be born healthy.
I wear a mask so that I can travel to new places, meet interesting people, watch my best friends get married, visit my family – and do all of the things I hope to never take for granted again.
So that my sister doesn’t spend her first year of medical residency under the constant pressure of responding to COVID-19 – and constant threat of contracting COVID-19.
I wear one to protect my grandma. I look forward to giving her a big hug once this is over.
To keep my family safe.
I wear a mask so my kids can hug their grandparents.
