The Role of Facemasks in Community Wellness

This video was produced using a sheet of laser light to reveal water droplets emitted during normal talking with and without a facemask.  You can read more about the demonstration the New England Journal of Medicine.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) “The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).”
