Black Lives Matter
Black People are the Most Affected by COVID-19
MASK UP!

Covering your mouth and nose in public spaces, especially indoors, is an easy way to show respect for other people as well as to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Masks of all sorts help for this. Bandanas, neck gators, cloth masks, and things I probably never would have thought about will help keep all of our droplets to ourselves.

If you have questions about COVID-19, please check out the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website.


UPDATE June 11, 2020:
More studies have been done. WEAR A MASK. Here's an article from Reuters that explains why.
END UPDATE.


Back to original article:

Wired Magazine (yes, I'm a nerd) has an easily digestible article about Black people being the most affected by COVID-19 in both infection rate and death rate. If you prefer cold, hard facts, check out this link at the CDC.

What do I have to say about any of this? I'm just trying to be useful. I see varying levels of mask wearing happening at the protests I'm watching. If the data says wearing masks will help, I'm gonna put on a mask and point to the data. So, whether you're protesting or grocery shopping, please consider masking up. You just might save someone's life.
