The practice of wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 has become an incredibly sensitive topic. While some state and local authorities mandate it, others don’t. Couple that with the fact that early advice about mask-wearing stressed the importance of wearing one to protect others, and people are incredibly confused.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released updated its “considerations for wearing a face mask” and doubled down on its recommendations that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings when they’re around people outside of their home, especially when it’s hard to maintain social distancing.
“Cloth face coverings are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the cloth face covering coughs, sneezes, talks or raises their voice. This is called source control,” the CDC says. “This recommendation is based on what we know about the role respiratory droplets play in the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, paired with emerging evidence from clinical and laboratory studies that shows cloth face coverings reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth.”
To be sure, masks are recommended primarily to prevent the wearer from spreading the infection. But emerging evidence has shown it can help offer some protection for those wearing it too. There are some simple memes (remember the urine test one?) and tweets breaking down the reasoning, and experts say there’s something to them. Let’s all do our part as responsible citizens and be proactive in reopening our economy while reducing the spread of this terrible contagion. “Integrity and Service Since 1983”
