I, like many people round here, have done a lot of digging into Covid-19, Masks etc and my conclusion is that wearing a mask and sticking to social distancing is the best way to keep those [two people] very close to me safe. (One of these people is the mother of my 2 young children. The other is one of my best friends who is also my business partner and muse)
For me, wearing a mask is not political theatre, no matter what anyone says.
My reasons are my own and to hell with you if you disagree!

It does not restrict it completely. Using a mask is part of a group of recommended behaviors to reduce transmission in a large population.
