Yet there are people who seem to religiously mask outside and then take the mask off when it is most critical, such as indoors when they get to work or in the breakroom w/ colleagues etc
My guess is that realistically, people are *not* going to wear a mask 100% of the day.
So the 25-50-75% that you actually do *must* happen when most likely that you could get infected
From what we know, getting infected likely takes more than a few seconds, so as long as you have some type of mask on, risk is probably low but...
But likely an easy answer— **pull down the windows**
I make sure the windows are down during these rides 100% of the time.
Others have written about this— ventilation is key
Individual scenarios will be different but if you’re around others, which most are, *mask on*
Remember— you are most likely to be exposed when you least expect it. So start thinking ahead— plan for the day/situations.
If you find yourself thinking about going to a party—need to make sure it is exclusively outdoors & limited # of people to avoid crowding.
Avoid crowds that form around bathroom etc
Risk: outdoors often turns into indoors esp in the heat
Put reminder signs on the door, whatever it takes
Also, last I checked, you can’t drink w/ a mask on
So— I personally would avoid indoor dining for the time being. Just go to places that have outdoor seating or get take out.
It is more than just “wear a mask”
