We had a thinking session today. What could you do to avoid spreading this damn thing and why is it called a bubble?

What could Doris Trump do that would be more likely to induce ridicule now? So we worked it out as a mental exercise.

He could suggest that the bubble should be made real and when in public everyone should go around in a zorb.

Think the comments re 'virtue signalling' are a bit unfair. Most people are following what they consider to be sensible guidance in the circumstances. I would have thought that the term equally applies to those who chose not to wear them given the current 'instructions'.
I must admit that I find the mask an absolute pain, as I am sure all those who wear glasses do, and would rather not bother but having sad that I will follow what is expected as surely it can do no harm and may even do some good even if the statistics are a bit uncertain.

Because any face mask, unless it is a properly fitted N95 surgical mask does not stop particles from you, especially those with vents to make breathing out easier.
If there is ANY gap between mask and face then there is air leakage, so you must, if male, be clean shaven.
Bandanas and fabric home made masks are, unless they have an ultra filter as used in a Dyson built in, are equally pointless.

Bottom line: unless the mask leaves lines on you face it isn't doing any more than deflecting/slowing the air you exhale. Which is why I consider most to be little more than virtue singling, and as for those who wear it with the upper edge below their nose.....

From the US FDA..

An N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. Note that the edges of the respirator are designed to form a seal around the nose and mouth. Surgical N95 Respirators are commonly used in healthcare settings and are a subset of N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators (FFRs), often referred to as N95s.

The similarities among surgical masks and surgical N95s are:

They are tested for fluid resistance, filtration efficiency (particulate filtration efficiency and bacterial filtration efficiency), flammability and biocompatibility.
They should not be shared or reused.

Interestingly, we're getting a number of students going down with the 'common cold'. It always happens at the start of every new school year as students are mixing and mingling with each other after a period of absence. Nothing to worry about - runny nose, few sniffles etc.

What is more concerning is that it's happening under the current conditions of social distancing/face marks/ hand sanitising/ hygiene awarenes/ school zones etc

Does make me wonder if there's any point in it all......

State sponsored pognophobia....

Mind you, You could be onto something. The last president of the USA to sport face-fungus was Howard Taft, who left office in 1913. Most presidents prior to that had facial hair.
