The Alberta Government just bought 20 million masks (non-medical) that are now available for free at your closest A&W, McDonald's Canada and Tim Hortons drive-thru locations. All these masks are here to help us minimize the spread of COVID - 19 and potentially other viruses coming from yourself. Please note that there's no real evidence showing the masks will protect you from those that are infected - they're meant to protect others. With that in mind, there's research stating that 100% face masks use could crush a second or third wave of COVID-19. Wearing a mask will help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 and other airborne viruses. Even if you're asymptomatic, you could be carrying the virus. There's currently a debate on the percentage of asymptomatic infected people - it could be as high as 80%! So let's all err on the side of caution and help protect each other especially our older Canadians - who are at greater risk of severe outcomes.
