Oppose strongly as needed.

For protection of vulnerable health workers and other patients, another patient should not be able to make the decision to expose them to their potential or real communicable illness. I do think it could be up to the health practitioner or facility at this point, however, so that those who refuse to comply can try to find a like-minded caregiver and fellow patients.
