If someone has the coronavirus and that person is not wearing a mask,?

and they talk to you through the window of a car can you still get the virus from them if the window is rolled up??

Update:

What if you are wearing goggles and a t95 mask? Could you still get it then?

    A  corona virus can not penetrate a rolled up car window. The only way you could contract a corona  virus from someone standing outside your car and talking to you through the window would be if that person was infected and he stuck his head through the rolled-down window and coughed directly into your face.

    If you were wearing goggles and an N95 mask, you would look like Darth Vader. 

    An N95 respirator mask or a T95 mask won't protect you against a contagious disease, nor will it protect others around you from a disease. Those type of masks are to be worn only in an enclosed, already-infected environment (such as in the Isolation Unit in a hospital). They expel your exhalations into the air in the enclosed room. But, that's OK because the air in that room is already contaminated.

    Very unlikely.

    It wont go through glass at all, so no.  Mask and goggles, very slim chance

    no you can't and you wouldn't be able to understand what they are saying with the window closed

    Yes, technically you could still get the virus but it would be much more difficult.    If your car engine is on, it is bringing outside air inside the car.  You could also exit the car and touch the exterior of the window and then touch your face.

    Yes, but you would really have to give it your solid best effort.
