A Registered Nurse in the US explains the dangers associated with wearing a mask and how it can affect the immune system.

The Government of Canada stated in a document on Public health measures titled: Canadian Pandemic Influenza Preparedness: Planning Guidance for the Health Sector that:

Providing masks to well people is unlikely to be feasible or sustainable on a population basis in a pandemic and may not be an appropriate use of public resources since little evidence exists regarding their effectiveness in reducing the spread of disease in the general population.
