ONTARIO, CA — Local woman Karen Bain saved millions of lives this week when she put on a mask for her morning walk. She reportedly took a brief walk down the street and was careful to avoid direct contact with people, grateful for the mask that was saving both her life and the lives of others.
"I knew in my heart what I had to do," Bain told reporters from six feet away. "I think this is why God put me here on this earth. To end COVID."
Bain, who has been quadruple-vaxxed and boosted, wasn't able to completely avoid people the entire walk. She says she knew her heroism had been noticed when she arrived back at her house and got some looks from neighbors.
Ontario Mayor Franklin D. Toole held a small ceremony in which he heralded Bain as a hero of the community. "I hereby give this brave woman the key to the city — and to our hearts," he said. "Thank you for saving my life."
The mayor and Ms. Bain briefly removed their masks for the photo op.
