Then I reach for my Echinscea and take a couple more to boost my general immune system in case they're the ones who have something contagious laugh

Most travellers with face masks wear them for their own protection, not yours. laugh

I'd presume they were Chinese.

We have Chinese students here who seem to wear face-masks no matter the weather.
I think they are so used to wearing them in Beijing and other cities there than they just continue the practice.

" When you see a traveller wearing a face-mask"

1- I think they must read more than most
2- I think they care more about their health, than what other people think

First they were gypsies, then they were travellers, now they're travellers wearing face masks.

Does their nefaerious deviancy know no bounds?

They mostly seem to control traffic and operate scams targetting pensioners here. I can't really see their enterprise taking off here too much.

They were never called gypsies here.

Face masked or otherwise

I voted sensible. If the person(s) are wearing a mask could mean they are ill and trying not to spread the illness or they are protecting themselves from illness.

Within a decade, everyone will travel with a face mask. N95. I do.

That could be very possible. I wen't to the hospital with my daughter last week because she needed to take an xray, I wore a mask and I was not sick and now this week I don't feel so good! Ugh!

N95 Respirators
An N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles.

The ‘N95’ designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95 respirators exceed those of face masks. However, even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death.

N95 respirators are not designed for children or people with facial hair. Because a proper fit cannot be achieved on children and people with facial hair, the N95 respirator may not provide full protection.

I just know they're mocking me, making faces as they saunter past, poking their tongue out, grimacing, laughing, scoffing, making ugly face,...thinking I don't know but me knowing exactly what their little "bad air" masquerade is all about.

I'm watching you, face mask wearing travellers - I'm watching you.

After you scowl at them as they pass by, maybe say 'thanks' for keeping their germs to themselves. laugh

Interesting to note that respondents to the poll, 50% expressed no concern with protection.

i agree with you...that they are doing it for their own protection.
but for most things, that doesn't work.
wearing a mask keeps germs and saliva, inside. and it protects other folks.

(i just read that from an article in vancouver because there's been a rush on buying masks at the drugstores in some areas and they are old sold out)

it's not unusual to see a few folks wearing masks in some areas of vancouver.
so if i saw someone, at an airport, i probably wouldn't think much about it other than to hope they were ok. like S said earlier... i would wonder if they had a compromised immune system and hope they were ok.
