Why we should wear masks in public

by 22q Administrator

The City of Toronto has enacted a mandatory face mask bylaw, and some other cities or regions have similar policies. We need to wear a mask or face covering in indoor public places to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep each other safe.

Check out this video by Bill Nye to see how effectively face masks work. When Bill wears a mask and blows on the candle, the candle stays lit no matter how hard he blows. The air flow from his mouth mostly cannot reach the candle. Similarly, when we wear masks, it is much harder for viruses from our mouths and noses to get into the air and infect someone else. So please wear a mask. Thank you.
