Protecting yourself and others – the mask works both ways

There has been a lot of confusion since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold about the efficacy of wearing face masks in public. In the early days of the pandemic, there was reluctance to mandate the wearing of face masks because there simply weren’t enough to go around. But now that supply chains are more secure, and most hospitals and health care facilities are properly stocked with PPE, there seems to be no reason not to “mask up”. We asked Dr Ron Shnier, our Chief Medical Officer, to clarify the latest thinking on the mask issue.
