I am confused. Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask. Masks protect others from, potentially, catching a contagious disease. This is what we’re told.
And what about when someone sneezes in public? As a retired teacher, we taught students to sneeze into their elbows, hopefully catching most spraying droplets with a sleeve. These days, I won’t go into a store where the parking lot is full and most people going in and coming out are not wearing a mask. It doesn’t make me feel safe.
No adult wants to be told how to live, but we do need to be respectful of each other. To err on the side of caution and protect those I come in contact with, I for one, will wear a mask and I hope you will, too.
