No, Wearing masks should be a requirement because wearing masks help you avoid inhaling the droplets that were infected which can enter into your system. Also, Countries such as Hong Kong and South Korea, Have mandated wearing masks in public places such that the virus will not spread. And the aforementioned countries have successfully battles against the spread of Coronavirus. I don't know why Western Countries like the U. S. A. Fear the idea of wearing masks. There is no harm of doing so.
