Residents React as Number of COVID Increases |  local news

“We don’t know if those who are not wearing a mask are vaccinated or not,” ISU employee Stephanie Mason said. “That’s what makes me nervous. ” Others worry about the vaccination status of those who do not wear masks. Several people at The Meadows shopping center Friday evening supported renewed restrictions if necessary to keep people healthy and safe, including Julie and Marvin Galloway.

Another lock down is a scary thought for many. “I honestly do think wearing masks and getting vaccinated would help because it already did before, so now we just need to get more people on board,” she said. “I would be willing to go back to how things were if we absolutely had to, but it would be good if we just tried to be more careful now.”

“I think if people were vaccinated, COVID numbers would decrease,” ISU nursing student Sydney Kollins said. “I also think that it’s a good idea for people to start wearing a mask again until more people get vaccinated. “Seeing numbers rise in Terre Haute definitely makes me nervous because we are going back to school and I would hate to have another lock down,” Indiana State University nursing student Jenna Griffith said.

Brandi Cosby said she’s personally not big on masking because she has COPD and already has a difficult time breathing without a mask. As far as a return to masking in general, she said, “I don’t think it’s such a bad idea in some places, but for everything overall, I don’t really think so. Some places I don’t think you really need it if there’s not a lot of people.” Susan Thompson said, “We hope more people will get vaccinated and realize that’s necessary at this point” to beat COVID.   

Mark and Susan Thompson expressed a similar view; both are vaccinated. “All during last year, we played by the rules,” he said. “We stayed home, we wore a mask — and if we have to, we’ll wear them again,” Mark Thompson said.  “We’re fully vaccinated, but we’re also concerned about particularly our grandchildren, so if it came back to masking and other restrictions, we would support that 100 percent,” Julie Galloway said.
