In an effort to educate my friends and family members who suddenly believe they are the experts on masks (sigh), I’ve been sharing a variety of mask-related posts on social media. I’ve honestly been shocked by the blowback I’ve received on those posts! It seems as if, suddenly, all the reasons healthcare professionals have worn masks are invalid, the science is faulty, and my lived experiences mean nothing. It’s been incredibly disheartening.
Have you found yourself defending masks? Are the people around you wearing them? Are you, like me, frustrated by the discourse surrounding masks right now? Have you been able to turn this into a productive, helpful conversation?
