Jimenez and Milton said it’s important to wear masks to reduce the risk of spreading and contracting COVID-19. They said it’s crucial to make sure face coverings fit properly, so that aerosols don’t escape or enter through gaps in the mask around the nose or mouth.
“Aerosols can travel farther than six feet, but they’re more concentrated the closer you get, so standing as far away as possible reduces risk,” Milton said. “The reason that bars have been such a big problem is that people get loud when they get alcohol onboard and move close together to hear, and you can’t drink a beer or a shot with a mask on.”

I am trying to be specific that this is specifically about the coronavirus currently causing pandemic, instead of regular cold-causing generic coronaviruses or other coronaviruses like the one that caused 2003 epidemic, or the other one that came from Middle East, or any other strain only in circulation among animals, because the implication would be totally different
They finally admitted that "There is growing evidence that droplets and airborne particles can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others and travel distances beyond six feet (for example, during choir practice, in restaurants or in fitness classes)."
Why they took so much time to confirm what we have already knew in January?
