To Wear or Not to Wear a Mask…that is the question

[LFC Comments: Thanks to Concord Bob for this article. This is one topic that we can say is not “settled science”.]

CDC guidelines say wearing a mask during prolonged exposure to coronavirus won’t prevent possible infection

by Emma Colton, Social Media Manager  | August 24, 2020 

Excerpts from the article:

“Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that those who come in close contact with someone with the coronavirus for more than 15 minutes could spread the virus regardless of whether either party wears a mask.

“Wondering what @cdcgov really thinks about masks? Their guidance on quarantining after exposure to someone with #covid explicitly states whether the infected OR exposed person wore masks doesn’t matter,” former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson tweeted Sunday.

“My mask protects no one. So does yours. Thanks for clearing that up, CDC!” he added, accompanied by screenshots of the CDC’s guidelines.

Leading Swedish epidemiologist Dr. Anders Tegnell, however, dismissed the idea that masks alone will “solve” the pandemic, citing “astonishingly weak” scientific evidence.

“The findings that have been produced through [the use of] face masks are astonishingly weak,” he told the German outlet Bild this month.”
