I think the point of the mask is to protect others from the mist/spray that comes from you. We all could have it with no symptoms at all and spread it.They tried the mandaory mask in Ohio and it got a a lot of push back and now its a suggestion as it should be, I'm sure there will be a lot of push back in Illinois too. This all is be handled wrong. You isolate the sick not the healthy. Its never been done like this. Unless you are fitted for N95 mask its useless. Ask any doctor or nurse. If you don't wash your hands before putting it and taking it off it doesn't matter.
For those who think mask work watch this video. This is the number one way people get sick. Why do you think New York is the hot spot? Many people in one space touching everything others have and then touching their face.
Yes the touching of the face is the way to get it or be near someone who coughs or sneezes. If they cough or sneeze into their mask it's better than nothing.
