    From what I've read, masks really don't help keep the virus out as much as they do help keep it in if you're infected. :grad:

    True.

    Masks labeled N 95 are apparently the best for either situation.

    From what i have read you need at least the N95 mask to be effective. These cheap little paper masks are more show then go. I do wear latex gloves when i shop or pump gas and wash my hands 50 times a day also using purell. There is no 100 percent routine.

    The masks are a smart precaution if you are around kids or the elderly. The morons walking around Target in full hazmat gear always make me laugh.

    a mask is a reminder to not touch your face - so it's effective for that

    There’s an an existential threat to your safety every time you leave the house and go into a store. An abundance of caution doesn’t make someone a moron.
