Social Distancing and Masks
The other day I was in the drug store. There were three young ladies who were standing away from everyone else but they were practically on top of each other while they laughed and giggled. They obviously did not understand that masks alone are not enough. Masks help keep droplets away from you but they can only do so much. The force at which a sneeze or cough forces particles into the air if you are close to someone is not really enough to protect you. You have to be at a minimum of 6′ apart with a mask on to protect yourself. It isn’t 100% perfect but it’s better than either of them alone. And this is especially true if you are inside.
