FYI...received this New England Journal of Medicine paper today on masks.

Summary: They are important in hospital settings and enclosed spaces with close and prolonged exposure, but as for wearing them outside, at grocery stores, etc. they are mostly to make others feel good.
“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.

The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal.
In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”
