Ever been sky diving? Race car driving? Rock climbing? Kayaking rapids? Lots of risk here. Is it unnecessary? Irrational? Some might think so while others do not.

Race Car drivers don't put 12 year old children at risk, drunk drivers do. The analogy of drunk drivers and people who don't get vaccinated putting other more vulnerable people at risk of injury/infection respectively is the point.

Should all individuals be required, for the remainder of their lives, to wear a mask at home and outdoors to ensure the safety of others?

No, get a vaccination and shut this thing down; deny the virus a host population and deny this virus mutating.

We elect to put the individual first and allow that person as much freedom as possible

Until that freedoms infringes on the health and well-being of others. That's why for some time it is mandated for hospital workers in contact with patients at risk to get (flu) vaccinated and drunk drivers go to jail.
