In rural counties health workers who were revered in a place where there are no hospitals are feeling hated. People in those types of county know each other. They know who is infected and who is wearing a mask. The biggest issue however is cultural they are not going to be told by anyone how to live their lives. Consequently, the health workers are therefore caught between a rock and a hard place. They feel it is their duty to save lives in their communities. Subsequently, communities in those environments feel they wont be seen dead wearing masks. This is not a political issue no politician alive is going to be listened to in these circumstances. They simply will not be told period and resent anyone who tries and tells them. Guess the freedom to live as one chooses runs deep and will not be usurped.
