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 read some website/blog where a photographer was talking about wearing an N95 when he was out and about. Not smart.

Wearing a mask is smart for at least two reasons.

1. You can have coronavirus, be asymptomatic and still spread the disease.

2. Wearing a mask discourages the wearer from touching their face with their hands which has been touching many surfaces.
