CITY HALL – St. Louis native and actor John Goodman is adding his voice to the city’s call for us all to wear face masks when we might encounter other people nearby. In a video on Twitter, Goodman joins Mayor Lyda Krewson and others including city residents and workers to urge area residents to wear the masks.Also in the video is Allyson Mace, publisher and founder of Sauce magazine, as well as Orvin Wooten, a MetroBus driver; Michael Carter, a city worker; and Jasmine Jones, who works for the officer of the city marshal.
Krewson aired the video Monday, saying: “Wearing a mask or face covering isn’t just about protecting yourself. It’s about being a good neighbor and protecting the people around you, including those on the front lines of #COVID19. I hope you’ll join me in wearing your mask, too!”
The city allowed many businesses to reopen Monday, with restrictions including the wearing of face masks and keeping up social distancing.
