While I understand your sentiment of “wear a mask if you want to” , it shows a complete lack of understanding, compassion or empathy for those that are more vulnerable than you may be. You see, when you wear a mask, it is mostly about protecting others, not just you. If it was just about whether you’re okay with possibly being exposed and you are therefore the only one at risk, I would say fine, go for it and don’t wear the mask. But, by not wearing a mask because you don’t want to, you are basically saying that you don’t care if you might be exposing others to a possible infection that you could be carrying without realizing it. So by not wearing a mask you are making it more hazardous to those around you than you are to yourself. It’s really a simple conscientious thing to do.|
