The Person Walking Past You Isn’t Wearing a Mask. What Should You Say?

It’s best to avoid hostility and communicate with empathy when it comes to helping people understand why covering their faces can slow the spread of the virus, say Northeastern researchers.

“Here at the Wilds in Cumberland, Ohio, I help with many different types of research to conserve and restore native wildlife and vegetation. My field work ranges from performing surveys to identify trees, snakes, and other species, to assisting with the care and study of federally endangered species, as well as my own independent research on native bat species. Our work positively impacts the surrounding community by inspiring the local children to pursue careers as ecology researchers and conservation workers through their volunteer work with the various surveys; some of which I helped organize. The Wilds is a place where both protecting the environment, internationally as well as locally, and inspiring others to follow the path of conservation meet as one and I am proud to work here as a wildlife research apprentice.”
