Questions and answers

Question: Who is masked: the wearer or someone else?

Answer from André Picard: Masks basically protect others, not the wearer. Coronavirus is spread by respiratory droplets from infected people. If you wear a mask, you will not spread the virus when coughing, sneezing, or talking, and are less likely to leave germs on the surface. As the saying goes: “Your mask protects me, my mask protects you.”
