False.
Masks cannot possibly prevent the spread of a virus. They might be able to slow it down a little, but that would be about it. Viruses are simply not going to be stopped by a porous mask that has pores much larger than the virus itself. It just isn't logical to expect that. Anyone who doesn't have the antibody yet, will in fact eventually come in contact with it and will then need to produce the antibody. That's just how it works, really.

The idea that as long as everybody wears masks then nobody will get sick at all, is just not thought through very well.

Folks, just take care of your immune system. Wear the mask if you like... but they cannot stop transmission.

If you want to self-quarantine, and expect that you will never ever come in contact with it, then do so. The rest of society will recognize the fallacy in that and will go on living life.

Always looking for microphones, vacuum tubes, music production and recording equipment, old broadcasting equipment, electronic test equipment, large vintage speakers, vintage stereo/audio equipment, and stuff like that...

That was spot on. A mask will prevent you from spitting on someone when you talk, which is better than nothing. But factually speaking, it does not stop the bacteria down to 1-2 microns, they're not meant to do that and won't.

No shaming. Fact. It has already been proven that masks and face coverings help to prevent the spread of the virus.

Do masks help? Yes, but also no. Lol.

When you are close enough, masks are completely ineffective. Like Billyjean and AudioGuy stated they help reduce the amount of saliva/moisture spread naturally by breathing, talking, etc.

Here is a study where COVID patients coughed into a petri dish with masks on. They did nothing to stop the spread. However, this test was not conducted at a distance of 2-3 feet where it probably would have reduced it somewhat.

My opinion is that if they keep businesses open and help avoid further economic damage by shutting everything down again; I'll gladly wear mine.

I do not agree, however, when people shame others or effectively "Karen" them for not wearing them. Its a free country and its their choice.

For comparison, Crestline (nearest official particulate monitor) has recorded a mere 5 days of "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups". Ozone is a different story...

Mammoth Lakes has had over 10 days of "Hazardous" air quality. It's had an additional 25 days of "Very Unhealthy" and 40 days of "Unhealthy". Basically an entire season of astronomically bad air quality.
