How is your freedom to go maskless and spray coronavirus into the air that me and other high-risk people have to breathe any different from someone else’s right to blow secondhand smoke into the restaurant where you’re sitting with your 2-month-old baby? Or someone else’s right to drive drunk?

Isn’t that about their personal freedom? No, it’s about protecting people they put at risk — just as wearing a mask is meant to do. Masks don’t protect the wearer much, but do protect others around them.

Seems pretty simple to me.
