That is your position. You believe that people should be allowed to decide for themselves* how and where to congregate during an active pandemic. If they then decide to congregate in a crowded, loud bar without masks or vaccinations, that will absolutely lead to more infections and more deaths - and not just for those people, for other people in their community who did NOT decide to risk their health. Thus, by congregating in that bar, they are jeopardizing the health of others. (* - and/or for the owners of such bars to make similar decisions.) As was the freedom to congregate in bars during the height of the pandemic.
