Just received a text from my daughter who is was PHD researcher and keeps up on interests relating to my interests as well as hers. She said there is new research out of Duke University which says that the wearing of a neck gaiter is worse than wearing a face mask in the transmission of particles. I just took the time to read the article and essentially its a Medical School researcher and through a study it shows the gaiters don't do much in the way of restricting the flow of material coming out of the persons mouth through the gaiter. For what its worth..... bit I don't want to incite a volatile discussion or a series of problems. Just an FYI thought.
