Jana, I found your comments to be dismissive at best. We have a medical crisis in this country, in this state and in this county. Wear the damn mask. Stay away from me. Get smart and don’t be stupid carrying covid to others. You may feel young and healthy but you do not know if you are a spreader.

I think it’s clear from my post that we want people to be considerate of others and wear their masks when necessary:

We definitely would like for everyone to be considerate of others, so yes, please bring a mask even if you think you’re healthy, keep a safe distance from other people when at the LZ, wear your mask when close to others, try not to touch your face and wash those hands. No need to take preventable risks.

It’s also important that if someone feels their health is at high risk, to do what they can to avoid contact with other people. As much as we’d like, we can’t always trust others to do the right thing. Unfortunately we’re not always there to police the LZ, we’re all just volunteers, so if you’re out there and see somebody putting others at risk, please remind them nicely to wear their mask.

Personally I bring my mask to the LZ and I try to wear it when I’m close to others, but I also don’t spend much time at the LZ. I go up to launch, I fly, I land, I pack my gear and try to leave fairly shortly thereafter if I can. Let’s all try to minimize our chances of getting sick, and/or infecting others by taking the necessary precautions.
