Wearing a mask may be a inconvenience, but according to a new study, it could actually save your life.

The study from University of California Davis, indicates that scientists have found that wearing a mask forms a barrier against mist or droplets that a carrier would release when breathing or coughing, which could suppress the passing of COVID-19.

Dean Blumberg, the Chief of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at UC Davis Children's Hospital, said in a statement:

Everyone should wear a mask. People who say, ‘I don’t believe masks work,’ are ignoring scientific evidence. It’s not a belief system. It’s like saying, ‘I don’t believe in gravity.

Let's be smart and have consideration not only for ourselves, but for our family members and co-workers and wear a mask and practice social distancing in order to combat COVID-19.

WEAR YOUR MASK!  Your life may depend on it...
