Am I a bad person for not wearing a mask anymore in most settings?

First of all, I’m not anti mask or anti vaccine. I am vaccinated and boosted. Ive been wearing masks everywhere outside of my house the entire pandemic. Lately I’ve gotten tired of it and stopped wearing masks around family and such. I do wear a mask in large stores where I’m around lots of people. I don’t usually wear a mask if the place only has a few people in it. Like I went to us cellular to get a phone yesterday and I didn’t wear one. I guess it’s because I look around and I see hardly anyone is wearing one. Is most of the population assholes? I live in Oregon so I think im in one of the hot spots.

No, you’re not a bad person. It’s OK to go without a mask in your home around just your family. I think it’s a good idea to wear them when you go to crowded stores.

You have a way of phrasing questions that reveals a black and white attitude about many simple questions. You seem to equate many simple choices with being either good or bad. Most life decisions don’t come down to good or bad. They are merely expedient or cumbersome.

Lighten up! Relax! Enjoy life! As we say here in Hawaii, hang loose.

No. I wear a mask only in certain situations. I think most people are like that now. If masks are required or someone asks me too I’ll gladly wear one, but I’m maskless in most outside situations, also indoors in zumba class. I wear a mask sitting in discussion groups, lectures, and when I go shopping.

Even if it’s a mistake, that in itself doesn’t make you bad.

Check to see what your current local reported infection rate is.


I’d wear a mask in public in Grant County, and the other red ones.

If you’re a bad person for not wearing a mask, then I don’t know what to say about myself. I stopped wearing it all together after the face allergy got so itchy. The only place I still do wear it is at the Hospitals or where masks are required.

Like I’ve said before, things will get back to normal sooner or later, we as people are going to make it happen. OP said she “hardly see anyone is wearing one”. People already started making things normal on their own.

That doesn’t mean I’m recommending other people to stop wearing it. I’ve complications with it, which is why I did what I did. If people don’t have any problems with mask then they should always wear it when going out as a precautionary measure.

Lastly, you’re not a bad person just because you don’t wear mask. Relax and think positive.

Well, we got great and clear information from the Scottish government on masks. ‘Masks are no longer required in most indoor locations, but we advise that masks should still be worn’. So, it seems that yes you should wear a mask in Scotland, but you don’t have to. Crystal clear, that. I don’t bother.
