Only covering your mouth

While the nostrils are much smaller openings than the mouth, that doesn’t mean they can’t take in or send out infected particles. In fact, unless you are a mouth breather, you likely breathe mostly or entirely through your nose. Meaning, if you only cover your mouth, you’re leaving yourself vulnerable to infection or making it likely that you spread the virus if you have it.
