Coronavirus at the race track, yeehaw

The organizer of a car race being held in South Dakota with 500 attendees this weekend was puzzled by some “individuals complaining ... I don't see how it affects them if they don't wanna come.” I'll tell you how, pal: Because after spreading coronavirus around your 500-person gathering, you go to the same grocery store as me – and the risk you took for yourself becomes my risk even though I didn't choose it.

Under what definition of freedom do other people have the right to subject me to a risk that I didn't choose? People need to think this through – lazy platitudes about rights don't apply when people can unwittingly pass a deadly virus to others by doing things that are normally fine and dandy.
