I wear an N95 mask; not some rag. Fitted properly, i.e. not under your chin, you know it's working by the effort required to breath.

I also used them while painting: N95, no "paint smell"; while under any other circumstance, including outside, upwind, I could smell paint.

I'm not saying a paint molecule is the equivalent of the virus "spore", but N95 also has "electro-static" properties your average rag does not.

Yes, most of the garbage that passes for a "mask" is just that: fashionable garbage.

And that's also why the current recommendation is to wear TWO of your (garbage) "masks".

(Edit)

This part is particularly humorous (from the CDC):

Quote:
No need for masks that are "intended for healthcare workers, including N95 respirators or surgical masks," says the CDC. "They're very hard to breathe in when you wear them properly," said Rochelle Walensky, the new head of the CDC, at. CNN Town Hall. "They're very hard to tolerate when you wear them for long periods of time."

Oh, boo hoo.
It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it.
