Thanks, Rita, for this informative post.


Um, just pointing out that masks are for keeping germs INSIDE the mask of a person who is ill, to protect those around him or her. Everything that I have read from the CDC and WHO state that wearing a mask does NOT protect the wearer from picking up germs from nearby people. The exception to this is to wear a very particular kind of mask, but the infectious disease doctor who discussed this on a news show commented that those masks are generally used only by medical professionals because they are quite uncomfortable to wear, so people generally want to be inside one only for minutes at a time.
