We’ve worked hard on education- and it’s a national message as well as a state message about the benefits from a medical standpoint of wearing a mask.  People understand that. You’d have to be hiding under a rock somewhere not to get the message that has been conveyed consistently as to how you protect others. But it’s also common sense as you can see that that protect you and others from the spread of the virus.  

Dr. Smith- the evidence is very clear that masks are very useful in source control. The idea of the masks we are wearing is that it will catch the respiratory droplets that come out of my nose, my mouth so they don’t get into the air and you don’t breathe them in.
