Err on the side of safety.
It is incomprehensible that we have so many in authority that are actively undermining the practice of wearing masks. From leaders at the Republican National Convention all the way down to a Sheriff in Florida, we see people that should be doing their best to protect the public, instead endangering it, by both word and deed. And for what purpose? Even if an overwhelming majority of experts didn’t advocate the wearing of masks, even if we as a whole were on the fence about whether or not they provide protection, why would we not still choose to don them on the chance they will?
To discourage those who are either obligated by the commands of a superior or held in ideological thrall to act against their own interests, and further, to encourage them to act against the interests of their communities is deplorable. There is no harm done by taking precautions that may be unnecessary. There is catastrophic harm in not taking precautions that are.
