Several studies, including one released by Danish researchers in mid-November, have shown that masks will not prevent you from being infected by any virus, including COV-SARS-2. This is because viruses are simply so small that they can slip through the mask. Smoke particles from wild fires are much larger and masks don't help their either, so they're not listed as a method to protect yourself from smoke inhalation.

What masks can do is block viruses that hitch a ride on water vapor when you exhale. Staying at least 2 meters (7.8 feet) apart will provide the same gap for everything except a cough or sneeze.

Based on these repeated studies, we should be pushing masks as a way to prevent any viral particles someone is carrying from being spread.
