My neighbor is responsible for managing all OSHA and Hazmat compliance

training for the entire United States Coast Guard worldwide. He is an expert in the field of wearing personal protective gear to prevent infection by biological agents (among other things); he's spent his entire post-Coast Guard career becoming such an expert.

He has put it this way: Professional servicemen and servicewomen are, by the nature of their roles in which they serve, already predispositioned to a much higher level of self-discipline than the general public. Given how hard it is to train professional servicemen and servicewomen to handle personal protective gear consistently and correctly, the idea of getting the general public to use personal protective gear properly and effectively in order to prevent the spread of highly-contagious COVID-19 is a pipe dream. (That's a rough quote.)

Given his experience and expertise, I can only agree with his assessment.
