I hate to get political re your very reasonable post. But I thought people should know some stats. I didn't look into the methodology or the exact questions. (For instance what does it mean to wear masks all or most of the time? Does that include in your own house? Working in the field on a farm? "All the time" is not a good way to ask the question.)

The reason I am sending this is to make sure folks know it is not just the young people you mention, although I think the numbers between political values would be more even if just 18-30 yr olds were polled.

"Democrats and those who lean Democratic are more likely than Republicans and Republican leaners to say they personally wore a mask all or most of the time in the past month (76% vs. 53%). Even after controlling for differences in the COVID-19 health impact in the communities where people live, Democrats are more likely to say they personally wear a mask all or most of the time.

Conservative Republicans are among the least likely to say they have worn a mask all or most of the time in the past month – 49% say they’ve done so, compared with 60% of moderate Republicans. Liberal Democrats are the most likely to say they have worn masks (83% say they’ve done so all or most of the time, vs. 71% of moderate Democrats)."
