Why are we only wearing face masks, why no goggles and earplugs to keep Covid from entering through our eyes and ears?

    You are right, we should wear goggles and earplugs too. But for our own ease we only wear mask to protect nose and mouth.

    It's a respiratory infection, which means it can only spread through the mouth and nose.

    It's spread through water droplets which come out of the mouth / nose. 

    Face masks prevent you transmitting it to others, moreso than getting it.

    I wear bi-focal safety glasses and don't care how goofy I look. It's better than suffocating to death.

    You certainly could but the mask alone provides the most protection

    glasses are recommended by some in the medical profession, I wear mine along with the mask,  no evidence to suggest covid can enter through the ears, only through mucous membranes

    I haven't gone to ear plugs yet, but did buy some attitude glasses since the eyes are an ez point of entry when some fool sneezes all over you !
