“Background: Observational evidence suggests that mask
wearing mitigates transmission of severe acute respiratory
syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is uncertain if this
observed association arises through protection of uninfected
wearers (protective effect), via reduced transmission from
infected mask wearers (source control), or both.

Objective: To assess whether recommending surgical mask
use outside the home reduces wearers’ risk for SARS-CoV-2
infection in a setting where masks were uncommon and not
among recommended public health measures.”
