Please wear a mask

WE ARE ALL in favor of getting back to normal and reopening Second String Music to the general public. But there is no "normal" anymore and we believe things must be different to safely get back in business.

If you want to come into Second String Music, we ask you to please wear a mask. Many people think wearing masks are unnecessary. They think this whole COVID-19 thing is a big conspiracy, and they think wearing masks won't help and are "infringing" on their freedom. Over 80,000 people had died in the United States from this "hoax" in three months, and those are government numbers. Let's admit those dead people can't respond to your hoax anymore.

We love our custom face masks.
If you think this whole thing is a joke and we should reopen businesses and not worry about getting the virus, I won't change your mind. But it's not about you getting inconvenienced, it's about protecting us and our customers. Medical professionals have been wearing masks to keep from being infected by patients since the late 19th century. It is real and it works.

We believe wearing masks help prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you think we are being brainwashed and the opinion of medical experts is to be disregarded, well, OK. You still can't come in without one. And whether you like it or not, many other businesses are doing this, too. Adapt or don't adapt, it's up to you. #MaskItOrCasket is Sheryl's new motto.

By the way, I do think we need to regionalize our approach to reopening, but to still do it safely and within guidelines. Our biggest concern is if we see a spike in virus cases this fall or winter locally - what do we do then, and who makes the call to shut down, and how do we respond?

We want nothing more than to rock and roll again at Fifth and Maine. But there is no normal anymore, and we have to all be smart, listen to science, and use common sense in a most uncertain time.
