Hello
Masks are only part of it, the virus can be caught by touch and exposed skin and also through the eyes its definatley a cunning little bugger.

It can't pass through the skin, but it can be caught via touching something with virus droplets on in and then touching eyes, nose or mouth.
That said by far the most common method of infection is believed to be through breathing in airborne droplets, this is why mass mask wearing massively reduces the chance of infection spreading.

I assume Mauserbill meant, someone with the virus touches their mouth then touches your skin (handshake or something) and then you touch your eye or mouth etc....
As you say, if both the infecter and the infectee are wearing a mask, they chances of spread are enormously reduced.

Our club has no interest in a member's intimate and private medical information.

Social distancing and liberal use of hand sanitizer is obligatory.

If you want to wear a mask for your protection then that is your prerogative.

There's so many disgusting lepers out there CV19 is the least of your worries 😀
