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.

Right, but if the person wearing the mask isn't coughing, sneezing or has any other apparent symptoms ...

And if a person is sick then they shouldn't be out in public if they can help it.

I view it like I do smoking/vaping: a visible indicator of common sense.

Or maybe they're on their way to a bank robbery?

I believe in science, evolution and light. All opinions are my own. I'm not compensated for any of my posts. Can you honestly say that?
