Response to DemUnleashed (Original post)

21. I've read that wearing glasses is helpful

Of course I wear a mask whenever I'm out around people, also I wash my hands frequently throughout the day. However I no longer feel the need to wear gloves or worry about touching things in the grocery store.

The thing about glasses is that the same aerosol that could get into one's nasal passage or throat (through close talking with an infected person) can also get into the eyes. People don't think about that so much, but sunglasses, eyeglasses or even a face shield can protect us from the aerosol. It's important to remember not to touch one's eyes or rub the eyes if you haven't washed your hands. (I have to remind myself frequently of this.)
