Wearing masks on the streets of #Toronto

You don't often see people wearing surgical masks while out in public around the Big Smoke, after all the air is pretty clean most of the time. There were a few more masks worn during the SARS issue, but otherwise they are very rare. I saw this lady in Yonge-Dundas Square earlier this year.
The air quality in Toronto right now is moderate AQI 44 - "Reason: Fine Particulate Matter (PM2.5). Health Effects: People with respiratory disease at some risk." The good news is air quality has improved over the last 10 years - good job Toronto.
