Just a reminder to those protesting, please social distance. For masks to work, everyone needs to wear cloth masks or FDA approved surgical masks. Cloth masks made with multiple layers and with filters work best. (And obviously N95 masks are the only ones that work 100%, but who can find those and we need to definitely save them for healthcare workers!)
From the CDC website, it sounds like the cloth masks help you from spreading large droplets to others. They are less effective at preventing the spread of small droplets to others. So if everyone wears it, it helps everyone.
Keeping at least 6 feet distance is still important!
I wish I could be out there protesting with you all!
