Iím guessing the mask MAY be a safeguard but they say infected people wearing them is more important.

Perhaps in crowds it could make a difference.

This is what I read:
I'm an ER physician and the above answer is pretty good. If you are out on a walk in your neighborhood you don't need a mask. If you have to go out in public (grocery store, pharmacy, etc.) I would wear one. A regular surgical mask should suffice (according to WHO and CDC) but if all you have is N95, go for it. Don't forget to WASH YOUR HANDS!!!
