Just to add I worked in a paper plant and we had to wear a mask for cleanup blow downs and while using some chems. We were tested for proper mask fit and efficiency. Each person had to pass the fit test and smell test. If you had facial hair like a beard or mustache you automatically failed. If you could smell the solution they sprayed on your mask you failed. These were good 3M masks but not sure of the number. The point is from what I have seen 99% of the masks I've seen people wearing are not doing anything but making them or people around the feel more secure. It was also an easy deterrent for the government to come up with once the medical/ first responders got the amount they needed of the N95's. Other masks might keep spit from your face but the fine covid particles, I don't know but somebody does and they're not telling us. I wonder why ?
