If you are physically able to wear a mask, there’s no good reason not to.

It feels like every day there’s a new video of some clown freaking out at an 85-year-old Walmart greeter inside the produce aisle after being confronted about not wearing a mask.

These people yell about how it’s their “right” to not wear a mask in a store, about how “dangerous” it is to wear a mask, etc. Just spouting off a bunch of nonsense they saw in a pixelated Facebook post shared by a fake Ted Nugent account or a page called something like “Tell Governor Whitmer — The People Deserve To Own Proximity Mines!”

Here are 19 reasons why there is absolutely no excuse for them, you, or anyone not to wear a mask if you’re able to. If these folks do it, there’s no reason you can’t do it:

Wear a mask! If people with #cysticfibrosis and other lung conditions can, so can you! I have a lung function of 33% and can still wear a mask. I wear oxygen and can still wear a mask. How would you feel if you gave someone #COVID19 because you didn’t wear one and they died?

This is how my uncle had to dress today to perform surgery on a Covid positive patient. His oxygen levels did not drop. He did not suffocate. If he can do this, you can wear a mask while running errands. This is not political, it’s about protecting your fellow people.

Hi. I have severe asthma and have been #shielding for 14 weeks.

Face masks are difficult for me. The warm, moist air can induce bronchospasm – causing coughing & breathlessness. I can be exempt from mask wearing. But I still wear one. If you’re well – #NoMasks is not an option.

I have asthma and damage to my lungs from beating bronchitis and covid. I pass out from any sort of overheating. U can wear a mask for the safety of others or u can stay your ass in the house if you’re that high risk and have a medical condition that “won’t let you wear one”

This is my best friend Danielle. She’s a CRNA and wears a mask at work all day, for 8+ hours a day. When she’s in the OR she wears 2. If she can wear this for 8 hours, you can wear one for 30 minutes while you’re grocery shopping.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Happy Friday.
