The number of people walking or even out running without masks here tells me we're not gonna stay on a downward covid trajectory for long and I just gotta wonder if modern Americans are utterly incapable of learning even at risk of death

The risk of outdoors spread is very, very, very low, especially with incidental contact. Someone would literally have to exhale strongly directly in your face (from less than a foot) outdoors for you to have a large chance of catching Covid-19.
Why do people always seem to worry about the wrong things?
There is basically no chance of a jogger running by you and giving you Covid-19. It’s not impossible, but it’s so very unlikely that you have more risk from crossing the street.
