If I wear a mask whenever in public will I most likely avoid getting the Coronavirus?

    Its not 100% guaranteed you'll avoid catching it, but it does dramatically improve your odds.

    Masks mainly protect others from you.  There seems to be evidence now that they offer some protection to the wearer, but not foolproof.  You should still social distance.

    Nope.  Maybe if you wear goggles too, but masks don't do much.  Walk into a convenience store beer cooler and exhale if you don't believe me.

    It can help but no guarantee but it is more likely to protect you from spreading it if you have it.
