A word about the use of face masks: The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have released a series of often confusing and contradictory statements regarding the COVID-19 threat now plaguing the entire world. Please think carefully about what we are presenting here… It is our opinion that the use of masks helps to reduce the spread of the virus by actively containing the droplet spray that issues forth from our mouths and noses each time we sneeze, cough or speak. Those droplets momentarily hang in the air as an aerosol under normal circumstances, like when you casually go about your life without any face covering. Nearby people can and do breathe in those droplets and the virus passes from you to them just that simply. You might have good reason to believe you are not affected by the virus, but it has been demonstrated that many people are passive carriers, meaning they don’t show symptoms of the disease. You MIGHT be affected and unknowingly spreading the virus. It is far better to err on the side of caution and try to not infect others accidentally. The use of face coverings also helps to protect you from
inhaling the droplet aerosols of other people, but it has been suggested that the effectiveness of these types of masks is better suited to protect others from you than you from others. Still, they do provide a layer of protection. Please, be as safe as possible for your families and friends.
