  • To mask or not to mask is a question Italy settled early in the COVID-19 outbreak with a vigorous “yes”.
  • In Italy, with more than 2 million people currently positive for the virus in a nation of 60 million and workplace absences curtailing train and bus runs, the government also sees masks as a way to let society more fully function.
