#FactFriday - Non-medical masks or cloth face coverings can make breathing difficult in high heat & humidity. When outside in a #heatwave, 2m. #PhysicalDistancing is best. Save the mask for indoors when you can’t keep your distance
The same Dr Tam that said masks not necessarily important but now my city is making them mandatory.

Surgeons are not likely to be out in the hot sun, walking their dog, playing tennis or jogging in their masks. I suppose they are safer in a climate controlled hospital when standing still. I had to wear one for years doing drywall and, with having chronic sinus infections affecting my breathing, there was no way I could of done much physical movement outside in the heat with a mask on without losing oxygen. Indoors bad enough.
