Some wear masks on the trail, others don't. Who is right?
April 29, 2020
I was walking my dog on the LoBo Trail through Niwot, wearing a homemade blue-cotton mask, when a group of three runners came toward me. None wore masks. One coughed about 25 feet in front of me. I hoped my mask gave me some protection, but I wasn't sure. I heard that wearing a mask was mostly to keep my germs out of someone else's lungs.
The cough set me off. I felt like I was put in danger by someone who carelessly spewed his viral or non-viral particles (I'll never know) and I was walking right into his cloud. I couldn't help but say something. The first time I have ever done that.
