I really just came to this realization! I can now wear a mask whenever I go out for potentially the rest of my life! As an introverted person this is absolutely amazing! Seriously your telling me I can wear a mask! I can actively just not have to show my face anywhere! before in 2019 if you wore a mask to the grocery store or gas station that was a mad shady situation. Now! I can wear it! I hate COVID-19 but I'm going to enjoy this little perk forever!
