To the Editor,
I come down to see my parents who live in Harmony about once a month and I stay for a few days. I just want to voice my concerns about the lack of compliance with the COVID-19 guidelines. In a town with such a large population of elderly citizens, I was shocked to be the only person in town wearing a mask. Not only were people not wearing masks, the businesses, with the exception of Sterling Pharmacy (Thank you!), weren’t either! Kwik Trip and Harmony Foods didn’t even have a Plexiglas shield at the check-out counters. The citizens of Harmony should be very concerned about this. Should (or when) this virus hit Harmony it would spread and wipe the town out in weeks. Please be considerate of your fellow townspeople. Wear masks as though you are non-symptomatic but that you carry the virus. That will help protect your community. Thank you to the businesses and people who were wearing masks that I didn’t witness.
Editor’s Note: All three of the grocery stores, Harmony Foods, Preston Foods, and Rushford Foods have had plexiglass shields at the checkout counters for well over a month. Kwik Trip in Harmony, Minn., currently does not have shields in place.
