The masking of yourself never protected you. It only protected others from you. And medical masks only protect others from droplet germs you may be spewing out.Possible, Trev.
I'd still say it's down to personal choice. I wore a mask only when it was mandated not because I thought it protected me but it reduced the risk of my being unknowingly infected and spreading it unwittingly.
Unfortunately, the public health agencies were trying their best to prevent spread of a virus of which nothing was known. Then governments got involved to ensure a widespread movement and to back public health. This is where, imo, real education about what masking really does was lost. Government doesn't educate, it only enforces.
