Recently I heard a story about two Covid-positive patients who came to our small hospital in Truckee, CA, wanted to be treated, but refused to wear masks. Both gentlemen were in the elder high risk group and from out of town. Apparently, they told the hospital that they had no right to make them wear masks. One of them threatened to sue the hospital if they reported him to the Department of Public Health for refusing to wear a mask in public, let alone in the hospital. Both were denied treatment.
