Brief Answer:
No need to worry for COVID if you had face mask.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
No need to worry for Corona infection if you had face mask during that incidence.
If face mask was not used then watch for symptoms like fever, cough and sore throat in you.
If no symptoms for 5 days then no need to worry for Corona infection.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
