I'm fully vaccinated for a reason, and won't be wearing a mask. It sends the wrong message to the unvaccinated. Let the unvaccinated wear masks. Vaccination is a personal choice, but don't punish those of us who did the responsible thing. Like the article states, the Bay Area has one of the highest rates in the state and the country. I had no problem wearing a mask prior to vaccination, but I'm mask free, thank you.
