Our nation should be able to mass-produce something as simple as N95 respirators and distribute them to the nation when and if needed for some future catastrophe. There will surely be more pandemics coming. My point is, if we need a mask, make it something that works.
Cloth masks, or even surgical masks, are like tying a rope around your waist while driving and claiming it’s a seat belt.
It also isn’t too much of an exaggeration to say wearing a Gucci style face-covering, such as Nancy Pelosi has, is like asking an X-ray technician to wear their grandmother’s kitchen apron when taking X-rays.

I wear a mask where required to be considerate of others. I had a few N-95 respirators left over from a some construction work and wore them early in the lockdown but now I wear a conventional “cloth” type mask.
