Dear Carolyn: I cannot understand why some people refuse to wear masks and socially distance and believe they will not get sick. I suggest when they do get the virus and go to a hospital, doctors ask whether they have been wearing a mask and socially distancing. If they have not, they should NOT be treated if that takes a hospital bed from someone who has been doing the right thing. Your thoughts?
