Ah yes I'm sure all the hospitals are getting their N95 masks from walmart and Home Depot.yes...yes...THANK YOU for posting this so now all of these ignorant people can now go out and buy up all of the N95s so there are none for the people working in hospitals that ACTUALLY NEED THEM. fantastic.
A surgical mask is better than no protection at all and also prevents dirty hands from touching the face. Combined with recommended hygiene practice of washing hands regularly, can improve odds of not being infected.
Change your perspective...the Masks are worn to keep you from infecting other people...

IF you wear a mask you would have to change it often during the day because once it gets damp from breathing through it, the mask is no longer effective.
Admin needs to educate themselves on mask ratings. This comment is not accurate and a mask with a "P" rating would be superior to a mask with an "N" rating when it comes to restricting the transfer of liquid particulates, Also...to those shaming everyone who wants to wear a mask....if they don't help then why do health providers wear them at all? If they do not help then why are officials wearing them? It makes sense that masks need to be handled correctly and should not be the only measure taken, but that does not mean that wearing a mask is pointless. It just means that the wearer needs to protect their eyes and even their ears as well and follow a disinfection regimen at all times. To shame people for trying to be responsible, careful, and proactive is just mean and it kind of makes people wonder if it is not just propaganda by those who perhaps WANT the virus to spread to as many as possible?
