Aren't these contradictory? If a Covid positive person sneezes on you with or without a mask might have an effect on you.3) Masks are to keep someone from infecting others by blocking droplets from making it onto or into someone else, not to keep the wearer from getting infected by filtering the virus....
4)... I have no problem with someone wearing a mask. It has ZERO effect on me.
Do you have a link to research done on this?Except those droplets that might catch in the mask material initially are subsequently forced out of the mask by exhalation. And they come out in an aerosol form, which travels farther than the droplets.
First, people shouldn't sneeze on other people, but more importantly, I took the risk of being out and about knowing that there could be a possibility of me getting infected. Now if someone knows they have covid and is still going out in public sneezing on people, then that's where the law should step in. Quarentine the sick and let the healthy live as they see fit.Aren't these contradictory? If a Covid positive person sneezes on you with or without a mask might have an effect on you.
You can do a simple experiment. Wet a mask, Breather through it. You may be able to see the aerosol, you will be able to feel it. Your breath is flowing through the mask as well, not just around the mask.Do you have a link to research done on this?
Not trying to argue, I am genuinely interested to see the data! I have no problem changing my opinions on things when given good data.
My gut feeling is we dont produce enough force during a normal exhale to aerosolize the droplets that have been absorbed by a medical grade surgical mask (blue 3 layer mask) or N95 mask especially considering most of the air goes out the sides of the mask and not through the material, but that's just a gut feeling.

No problem on the web search, I did a search myself but didnt find anything that really mentioned it. I may look again later.You can do a simple experiment. Wet a mask, Breather through it.

Nothing personal, but I am not going back through another web search on this. Did a lot of research early on. And if you look at studies 2019 and earlier, you will find plenty of studies that say the typical mask (non N95) is worthless with regard to virus transmission.
I should have been clear, I am NOT talking about N95 medical masks. Rather the masks and bandannas that 99% of the folks are suing.
