    Yes, A gas mask will stop mucus droplets from a cough just as a paper or cloth face mask does.

    ONLY IF ITS FILTER IS DESIGNED TO FILTER SUPER SMALL VIRUS SIZE WORKS, THE NORMAL FILTER TO FILTER GAS OR CHEMICAL VAPOR  DOES NOT ABLE TO FILTER AWAY THE VIRUS . VIRUS IS SMALL ENOUGH TO GO THROUGH THE GAPS IN CHEMICAL LAYER FILTER ( MAKE OF ACTIVE CARBON PIECES) .

    Depends on the design buy probably just as some industrial respirators would. After all they are designed to keep atoms or molecules from passing through.
