Guest: Shruti Gohil, M.D., professor of medicine and associate medical director for epidemiology and infection prevention at UC Irvine’s School of Medicine [said] “The key point is when you wear a mask, you are reducing your amount of any type of droplet that could go into the air in your local surroundings. We don’t live in bubbles. We can’t always guarantee we are going to have that bubble around us spatially at all times ….
