          Abstract

          As COVID-19 rates increased in the autumn months of 2020, infectious disease and public health experts worldwide have promulgated professional advice as to mitigation strategies. Mask wearing, social distancing and hand hygiene have been part of the guidance intended to slow the spread of the infection. However, many in the population have chosen not to follow the guidance because they believe it to be too restrictive and violative of their individual rights. The ethical principle of non-malificence would argue in favor of following the professional advice on mitigation measures.
