Re: I gotta ask.....
....something people don't understand about face masks, many think they are wearing excellent protection from others and that they become safe from getting random airborne infectious COVID-19 spores. Your living in a fools paradise if you think you do. The COVID-19 is a viral pathogen; and is so small you need an electron microscope to see it.. a viral spore is 100X smaller than a bacterial pathogen spore. How is it possible that a simple cloth face-mask will filter out
viral, COVID-19, the flu or any tiny pathogen? If you can smell cigarette smoke from others while wearing a simple cloth face mask, the tiny pathogen spores will pass through just as easily... they are in orders of multitude many times smaller than even a cigarette smoke particle. Don't depend on a face mask to keep you safe. Face masks help reduce aerosol airborne spray from infected persons when they cough or sneeze.
Wash your hands often and whenever you can.
Use 60% alcohol based gel often and whenever you have been out touching things. Be careful with money.
Stay away from large crowds... do not go to the tiangus for example.
Insist on restaurant tables and menus being wiped with antiseptic... always busy waitstaff generally won't unless you ask.
Follow the 2 meter rule if not more.
Just go out less and reduce your risk further.
