With COVID-19 cases seemingly on the rise, there is a concerted effort to get the general public to wear masks while they are away from their homes.

Many believe that masks, while not keeping the wearer from getting the coronavirus, will prevent them from spreading the virus. Some of those who refuse to wear masks say they don't believe that masks actually help to contain the spread of the virus. Others have said they feel that they shouldn't be held responsible for the health of others.

How do you feel about it? Do you wear a mask in public even when not requested to do so, or do you refuse to wear a mask unless forced to do so? Please take our poll below.
