I think you may be right about that. Keeping your hands away from your face is to prevent introducing the virus to your mouth, nose or EYES. One of the concerns I've heard about wearing a mask is that the eyes are still vulnerable in the event some one spews out the virus near you. I also heard a good sneeze or cough can spread the vapor droplets 27 feet, so be liberal with your distances just to be safe/keep others safe. Ditch the contacts and wear your glasses for the time being. The advice on best practice here is no mask, diligent hand washing and keep your hands away from your face. I should add, at the present time....provincial update this aft.

and best practice elsewhere is wear a mask...
there are dozens of references on this.
here's one:
