            Handling Editor: Dan Osborn

            Editorial decision: Request revision. The Handling Editor requested revisions; the article has been returned to the authors to make this revision.

            Additional comments from the editor:

            • The paper addresses a rage of topical issues relevant to the pandemic connected to mask wearing and is thus of global interest.
            • The paper has been substantially modified in response to the first set of reviewer comments and revision request.
            • The received review of this revised paper is very favourable in its general assessment and points to a number of minor improvements that the authors could make of which the point about Ireland is perhaps the most important. Making these small corrections will smooth the editorial process to full publication.
