Face masks

Well isn't that the whole idea? Face masks keep you from spreading the virus to others. So you wear a mask in case you are a carrier and don't know it.

I don't think anyone--at least anyone with any actual medical knowledge--has ever said masks prevent you from catching the virus. That is not how it works.

I wish politicians understood more basic science and could explain this better. Maybe then mask-wearing would not have become so politicized.

That said, if you are out in public without a mask, then you are as much of a uncaring jerk as the person who doesn't wash their hands after using the restroom. Except the contagions that person spreads are probably not going to kill anyone.
