they did not know it was fleas till much later.

people who brought food or tended to the sick wore these:




and those medieval masks worked.
*We know this is a virus but not its properties. a cloth or industrial mask will filter your tiny nose and mouth droplets.
Those masks were used by "plague doctors", who believed the plague was caused by bad air. The beaks of the masks were filled with pleasant-smelling herbs, so that the smell of decaying bodies would not overly affect the wearers. The doctors also wore a wide-brimmed hat as a sign of their profession, and they used a long stick to point out certain spots on a body. Back then, people did not know about viruses or bacteria.

Water droplets. If you can smell someone's breath, you're likely close enough to inhale their water droplets. That should probably be avoided.
