A single cough can produce up to 3,000 droplets. There are fears the virus can also be spread simply through speaking. One recent study showed that we spray thousands of droplets invisible to the naked eye into the air just by uttering the words “stay healthy”.
“Face masks could help to reduce transmission in the community particularly if used in public transport and crowded areas,” says Ben Cowling, head of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Hong Kong.
St. Johns County Commissioner Paul Waldron caught the coronavirus and went into septic shock after voting against a motion to mandate masks for county employees last week.

Ashley Waldron Zapata, his daughter posted on Facebook on July 9 that Waldron “went into septic shock and has many organs struggling.”
“He is currently in the most critical of conditions,” she wrote. “I ask you not to doubt the power of prayer.”
According to the St. Augustine Record, at least two of his fellow commissioners have responded that they are praying for Waldron.
Waldron has attended at least the last two commission meetings by phone since Florida’s state of emergency allows commissioners to hold their meetings remotely.
Last week, the St. Johns Board of County Commissioners took up the issue of whether masks should be mandated countywide. One of the motions would mandate masks for county employees. It failed by a count of 3-2, with Paul Waldron voting against it.
