Thankfully this risk is very, very low, even for more "at risk" people. The percentage of people who actually develop symptoms of COVID 19, then require hospitalization (the vast majority don't) and then require a ventilator is very, very low.

I wear a mask in the grocery store and in any place that requires it, which thankfully isn't very many places. Otherwise, maskless, baby!

Ditto. I wont be guilted or made paranoid to think I need to wear a mask to go jogging or out where few people are.

Just carry a mask and some sanitizer wipes when you go for a run. You don’t have to wear it if distancing is possible but no way of knowing there can’t be a situation warranting to wear one.

You definitely don't NEED to wear a mask, it is plenty acceptable in USA and especially Texas to be an asymptomatic Super Spreader. Tho many countries will issue you a 'lock-down-order' if you have even been exposed to someone positive. USA will never know, because we don't bother with testing nor have social expectations of not exposing others.

500% increase in 'community spread' during the last two weeks in my region of Texas
Run on!

USA 1,902,768 cases +20,000 to 25,000 daily 109,159 deaths
Taiwan 443 cases NONE added daily .. 7 deaths (full of fleeing Chinese and very densely populated areas (NYC style), NEVER a lock-down)
- no significant economic disruption.

We (USA) are so smart!

Run-on,
celebrate our (your) Freedom!
Carry a flag!
