COVID-19: Maybe Masks Don’t Work because they Leak Badly, and are Worn Improperly? A Recent Experience at McDonalds
I never eat at McDonald’s, with its nigh-calorie malnutrition menu. But my daughter craved a breakfast there after a week of camping, and so we went to McDonalds in Lone Pine, CA.
About to enter the restaurant, a young woman approached us to also enter. She was wearing a surgical mask which was covering her mouth, but nose and nostrils were entirely exposed.
I embarrassed my daughter by asking this young woman pointedly: “What is the point of a mask if you don’t wear it properly?”—to which I received no response.
The young woman left the mask as-is with fully exposed nose/nostrils, and then entered the store to take up her shift preparing food for customers.
My daughter tells me that this happens all the time at local stores.
Things like this could explain why leaky masks on real people in the real world achieve diddly squat.
