On Tuesday, Governor John Bel Edwards made an announcement that he was lifting the mask mandate for Louisiana. While I could hear what seemed to be sighs around the world, I still have a question I wanted to pose to many of our listeners on whether they would continue to wear their masks or not.

I believe from the consensus that many were still going to keep themselves safe and wear their masks. President Joe Biden also said if you've been fully vaccinated, you can go outside and are not relegated to wearing the mask.

I have to admit, I am going to continue to wear mine because some are still not going to get vaccinated. We want to make sure we have to take care of ourselves and if that means doing what's best for you, don't feel apologetic about wearing your mask inside or outside.

 

The wonderful thing about life is that we all have choices. Now that the mandate has been lifted, you are no longer required to wear your mask. However, the coronavirus is still prevalent and doesn't seem to be leaving anytime soon. That is what I am basing my decision on.

If it was a 100% that everyone is taking the vaccine and that would put an end to the pandemic, I would have no problem dropping my mask. But until that day happens, I'm obviously not the only one who'll be wearing a mask.

LOOK: Here are the biggest HBCUs in America

More than 100 historically Black colleges and universities are designated by the U.S. Department of Education, meeting the definition of a school "established prior to 1964, whose principal mission was, and is, the education of black Americans."

StudySoup compiled the 20 largest historically Black colleges and universities in the nation, based on 2021 data from the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics. Each HBCU on this list is a four-year institution, and the schools are ranked by the total student enrollment.
