So this pretty much sums up the absurdity of PPE for non medical people. The picture was part of an article on the mental health risks of self isolation and social distancing. A grandmother staying in contact with family via computer, She is presumably home alone in her kitchen wearing a mask and gloves. If you are in your own home there is no need for either.

Everybody knows computers are susceptible to viruses.

So you're saying I can take these darn things off now?

It a question of degree. Of course wear a mask when in public spaces where close contact with others may occur. Glove not necessary in any setting.
