On a recent Saturday, my husband and I went to McCutcheon’s in Frederick to get a “few” items for Christmas.

Everybody in the store, employees and customers, were wearing masks. When I checked out, with two full boxes and a full bag, two very kind gentlemen helped us carry the stuff to our car. After thanking them, all I could think of was how much I like living in Frederick County.

That is a terrific and unique store.


You are only speaking of the city of Frederick. Not Frederick County, especially in areas north of the city. It is nothing out of the ordinary to walk in to a store in Thurmont or Emmitsburg and see many people either without a mask, or wearing it without covering their nose, which is the same as not wearing one. I stopped using a laundromat in Thurmont because most of the other patrons were sans mask. I now do my laundry in Frederick, where people use more common sense and do the simple thing of wearing a mask.


People in Frederick County are nice and friendly. A ray of light in this pandemic.
