It seems to be that somethin' is bettern than nothin'.
You're suckin' in air all the time, and things - even small things like a virus could get stuck in some sort of gauze or cloth - and while it may be able to pass through because of the fineness of the 'gaps,' something in the way might help if you take it off and wash it well after each trip out.

I am concerned that your article classifies COVID 19 as an airborne disease, when all other public health information I'm receiving states it is not airborne.
I understand that it can be passed through droplets and contact, and that if a healthcare worker is ventilating or using a nebulizer or other similar procedure that micro drops can become airborne- but to the general public it is not airborne.
