Wearing a mask is all about risk reduction
Debating about wearing a face mask is ignorant as is but we should all realize it’s about risk reduction. Is wearing one going to guarantee you won’t catch coronavirus? No, but you increase tip the odds a bit more in your favor.
Masks may be more effective as a “source control” because they can prevent larger expelled droplets from evaporating into smaller droplets that can travel farther…
Even if you live in a community where few people wear masks, you would still reduce your own chances of catching the virus by wearing one.

That’s about all that can be said about the mask debacle. So next time you’re out in public just remember, you can catch it through your eyes too.
