Don't "Masks" Make a Difference?

"Don't 'Masks' Make a Difference?"

AOF: I'm docile enough to wear a mask without resisting when I go into a place (e.g. supermarket) where Montana's governor's mandate applies.  

But I'm a complete skeptic on the subject and readily admit I'm just going through the motions: I have a paper mask of uncertain provenance that I keep in my car and use when needed -- same mask for the last several months.

Below is the pertinent second half of a current article, The Year of Disguises, by a PhD chemist who claims significant experience with protective equipment.  His is a much better informed skepticism than my own.

Great article.

I have a friend who has very frail health and who now lives in a group home. He got bossy with me when I last visited. That's because I had to take off my mask for a couple seconds in order to get a gulp of fresh air.

I've wanted to tell my friend "My Covid-19 experts can beat your Covid-10 experts", but haven't have the heart to do it.
