As a note, without government intervention, us “cowerers” are not allowed to stay home. Due to government action, I was allowed to stay home without losing my job.
AND in the South, we were not legally allowed to wear face masks, because KKK, before government intervention.

But the rest of us must be able to decide what kind of risk to accept for what kind of reward. Us going out, mingling and sharing our diverse bacteria, viruses and even protozoa does not stop the cowering ones from cowering, does not inflict any added risk of infection on them, since they cower at home, while we mingle outside.
