Mask Up and Shut Up

quote [ Jimenez told me that, compared with yelling, quiet talking reduces aerosols by a factor of five; being completely silent reduces them by a factor of about 50. That means talking quietly, rather than yelling, reduces the risk of viral transmission by a degree comparable to properly wearing a mask.

Some ideas on sparing other people your breath.

Also, have fun adjusting the “Loose Lips Sink Ships” slogan.

I'm in Ontario Canada and in a major city. Masking has gone down and surprise! we have more COVID cases. Most of the people are either chin-masking, nose masking or just not wearing masks at all even in mandated areas. And distancing? a hell of a lot less than they should. A large group of those are the "financially and socially disenfranchised" even when they are wandering around with their new iphones out.
