Wearing a mask is controversial. I fall on the side of, as a lawyer who does infection control work wearing a mask, I don't see anything wrong with the American public being supplied masks. The big question I have is, why can't we get them? Why are they not available if I choose to wear a mask? We certainly need masks for hospitals, emergency rooms, first responders, and anybody who's at home taking care of a loved one who's sick. So while the government have said everybody does not have to wear masks or shouldn't even be wearing masks, I fall on the side of I don't see any problem with it at all.
