Until this article/video, I hadn't thought much of the scarf format - but then upon consideration of masks - to a great extent they'll share their effect between mitigation and redirection.

Interestingly - "fine mesh" - can be obtained in more than one way. A single thing sheet of very tightly woven material or many layers of less tightly woven material. The former (fine mesh) will react poorly to pressure increases and redirect to vent said pressure; the latter (if the coarser mesh doesn't get extreme) doesn't have the problem with pressure (by comparison) but does effective trapping of droplets as the wend through the contorted path between mouth and "outside", trapping droplets on the fibers during many collisions.

Somewhere in this is an optimum for, in particular, the purpose that masks are recommended for the general public (vs. surgery): to prevent the wearer from infecting others.

This, of course, is a gedanken experiment. However, give it some thought - consider cases both at the boundaries and some middle-ground cases.
