Should I wear a mask outside my home during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Remember: masks are not about protecting the wearer but, rather, protecting everyone else. This is especially important because so many carriers of the novel coronavirus — as many as 40%, according to one recent study — are asymptomatic and could otherwise be spreading the virus without even knowing it. Wearing a mask creates a barrier that prevents the spread of droplets that carry the virus. Even if a cloth mask can’t catch every single droplet, it still significantly reduces the droplets a carrier propels into the air around them.
