Is It Petty To Refuse To Wear A Mask?

There’s no mask mandate where I live, but many businesses and facilities still have signs that say they require masks. I personally refuse to wear a mask for two reasons: 1) Masks are proven to be ineffective in stopping the spread of the virus, unless it’s an N95 mask, and 2) I believe that the mask is merely a religious symbol that is essentially the same as a Christian wearing a cross necklace. However, I keep getting called “petty” by close loved ones who are also Christian for my refusal to mask up. So is it actually petty for a Christian to refuse to wear a mask? Should I just comply in order to be peaceable, or is this a hill worth dying on?
