Greetings to you on this fine Colorado day of May 19, 2020. If you’ve been barraged with articles about face masks, comments about why they don’t work although many people are wearing them. I have opinion about face masks as I’m sure most everyone else does too.
Check out the link to the article below. It’s the most helpful one I’ve seen so far to determine how and when to use face masks in combination with hand washing, not touching your face, staying at home, and social distancing or staying 6 feet away from others.
The author is Peter Tippett, MD, PhD, Internal Medicine certified, Emergency Room MD with a PhD in Biochemistry. His background has focused on helping people understand how risk, infection and the growth of infection behaves. I hope you enjoy his article.
Here’s the link:
