If you're wondering whether you should wear a mask the next time you leave the house, the answer is yes, you should. If not simply to protect you from contracting the virus, than to protect others if you are an unknowing carrier. No matter what age you are, none of us is immune from potentially harming those around us. We have to protect each other, especially those most vulnerable in our communities. That is why it is so important to follow the shelter in place and social distancing orders. They stop the spread which saves lives.
