Here are three relevant quotes from an article in the Atlantic monthy entitled: “This Overlooked Variable Is the Key to the Pandemic” The red highlights are mine.
“In study after study, we see that super-spreading clusters of COVID-19 almost overwhelmingly occur in poorly ventilated, indoor environments where many people congregate over time—weddings, churches, choirs, gyms, funerals, restaurants, and such—especially when there is loud talking or singing without masks. . . .
Super-spreading can also occur indoors beyond the six-feet guideline, because SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen causing COVID-19, can travel through the air and accumulate, especially if ventilation is poor. . . .
But we don’t need to know all the sufficient factors that go into a super-spreading event to avoid what seems to be a necessary condition most of the time: many people, especially in a poorly ventilated indoor setting, and especially not wearing masks.”

Thank you for repeating that! This is science, but not even rocket science. Wear a mask, avoid high risk situations especially indoors– care for yourself and be considerate of others. Pretty simple, why so hard for many people?
