Need words of wisdom while still wearing a mask in public
I am looking for some advice about wearing a mask at social gatherings. We will be moving to an over 55 community and are excited to meet some new people and enjoy all of the activities they offer. We already went to their Club House opening and my husband and I were the only ones wearing a mask. I sensed a feeling of disgust and it seemed that everyone avoided us. We met with the foreman who is building our new home who saw our masks and responded "Whoa, you're not sick are you?" I need some advice on how to interact in these situations. Do I introduce myself and say, "no I'm not sick, I'm being cautious" or "I have a lung condition so it's best that I wear a mask". With everything that older people can catch these days, I'm really surprised that more elderly people don't wear a mask. Then, I wouldn't feel so alone.
You're feedback is appreciated.
