Is he using it right?

In her May 8 letter (“Maskless Pence”), Jennifer Adams states that Vice President Pence chose not to wear a mask when he visited the Mayo Clinic so he could look the doctors in the eye and thank them for the work they are doing.

Someone should have informed him that if he can’t look people in the eye when he’s wearing a mask, then he’s wearing it wrong. The mask, when worn properly, should only cover the nose and mouth.
