It seems that if you are saying we still need to stay away from each other even with masks on you're really saying that masks don't work.
Your logic is flawed.

Masks work; not to protect the one who wears it, but the people around it. During surgery, the doctor wears a mask to protect you, not him.

And even if you were under the assumption that masks protect you; there's this advice to not shake hands and not to touch your face - breathing in the virus is not the only way it enters the body.

I keep hearing the argument that masks don't work, even from the government here. So we have no requirement to wear them, while the countries around us made them mandatory.
