Sultan Anshori reports for Reuters that more than a thousand people attended a prayer at Besakih Hindu temple in the town of Karangasem, expressing gratitude for the handling of the new coronavirus on the island and seeking blessings for the start of a “new normal”.

If you want a case study of “how to do it wrong” this would suffice. “More than a thousand people” and just a few of them wearing masks correctly.
I see the same thing at my local grocery store; I am the only person in the place who is wearing it right.
I’m still prepared for if I really need to mask up. I have a pressurized air mask that I’ve rigged with a HEPA filter; it’s what I wear when I am grinding lead paint off of wrought iron bars. It’s driven by a battery pack that clips on your belt (I got one on ebay that had no battery pack and jiggered together a USB power connector hooked to a USB charge-pack) and it makes a funny whine while the compressor motor is running. It’s like wearing an air conditioner on your face and – if I were going to go to an airport or get on a plane – it’s what I’d be wearing.
