Event Details:

Even the best masks won't give you 100% protection. If you've got only just one mask to protect yourself, you better ask the person you are meeting with to wear it rather than you do. It's so uncomfortable wearing one walking around. Should you still wear it? How do you make the trade-off? How many more people will wear a mask if it is slightly more comfortable to wear one? Let's see how economics helps us find out the answers.
