And it's all that mixing up among other groups that seems like the problem.

All it takes is the guy behind me in security to have it, breathing down my neck while we wait to go through the TSA scanner, because he's one of those "MASKS DON'T WORK" morons, and then who knows? The guy sitting next to me in coach for two hours and I could both wear our masks, I'm sure that's got to be better than if neither of us did, but wouldn't it be better for him, and for everyone he's near wherever he's going, if I wasn't even there because I took the gulfstream instead?
Shouldn't the takeaway be travel habits in general?

As long as your whole vacation has the same private jet approach, no crowds and minimal mixing the locals and/or crowds, you're probably right.
