Do dust and pollen masks provide any protection from convid-19?

I have masks purchased before the pandemic that are not N95 or surgical. I realize they won't filter the virus, but would they protect from droplet spread and are they worth using?

    My understanding is that they will prevent droplet spread. That's all I have - I found a 5-pack from Ace Hardware in the garage - so that's what I'm using. Better than nothing, I say. Stay safe!

    They will not protect the user, but could stop droplets affecting others, if an infected person sneezes.
