More evidence that masks work

We got some good COVID-19 news last week from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is great that their science continues to advance. They stated that wearing a mask if we are asymptomatic and spewing particles doesn’t just protect our neighbors, friends and people we pass on downtown sidewalks.
