Mask to mask transmission?

Note: The mask plot thickens. In California, COVID stepped in and said to mere, measley measles, "Hold My Anchor Steam."  Below is an article about mask-to-mask transmission that has halted the Assembly.  As always, we wish a speedy recovery from any illness, including COVID.

Which, if any "lay" masks - you know, like the one's that Target is selling complete with a try on mirror, are effective. How is COVID-19 transmitted and what is our ability to pinpoint the "carrier..." when someone tests positive? Do we need to point blame to make ourselves feel better?  (Insert doomsday music here.)

Update: California Assembly on hiatus after lawmaker reports ‘mask to mask’ COVID-19 infection Read more here

The Assembly is suspending its session until further notice following five confirmed COVID-19 cases among lawmakers and employees.

John Casey, a spokesman to Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, said the Assembly is “closed until further notice,” meaning it will not return for previously scheduled legislative hearings on Monday.

Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, D-Inglewood, has tested positive for COVID-19 and will remain in quarantine with her daughter until a doctor instructs her otherwise, she wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Burke had “mask to mask” exposure to the virus on June 26, she said — the same day that an Assembly employee was last in the Capitol before testing positive. That employee wore a face covering at all times, according to an Assembly Rules Committee email.

The Assembly Human Resources Department told Burke on July 3 that she had been exposed. She tested positive the following day.

“Thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes,” Burke wrote on Monday. “We are fine, but it is of the utmost importance that everyone stay safe, be healthy & remain vigilant.”
