I wonder if people who are wearing masks while out and about are doing it so that no one tries to speak with them.

There's a lot of information out there that explains wearing a regular surgical-type (non N95)mask does not protect you from coronavirus.

I've read that there is no point in wearing a mask unless it is YOU who is sick. It keeps an infected person from spewing the micro-droplets when coughing, sneezing, etc.

You probably noticed that in Japan, when a person has a cold or something, they wear a mask as a consideration to others. Same idea.
