I’ll pass on reading it and just assume it concludes that masks prevent infection from Covid even though they have not.
The important thing is for mask wearers feel virtuous and superior to anti-maskers
(formerly known as people minding there own business and living their lives).
It is a meta-analysis of multiple studies, and here is the summary:

"The preponderance of evidence indicates that mask wearing reduces transmissibility per contact by reducing transmission of infected respiratory particles in both laboratory and clinical contexts. Public mask wearing is most effective at reducing spread of the virus when compliance is high."

Awesome, I hope you are sporting a mask proudly and feeling a sense of accomplishment.

Conclusions: We did not observe association between mask
mandates or use and reduced COVID-19 spread in US states.
COVID-19 mitigation requires further research and use of
existing efficacious strategies, most notably vaccination.


I'm not wearing one. It isn't that I refuse to. I don't carry a cane, wear a top hat or whistle while I work. I have never been accused of "refusing" to do any of those things even though all of them are just as effective against the spread of Covid as the filthy masks some people wear (and fondle) all day.
