Correct and consistent mask use may be the important step everybody will desire to prevent and spreading COVID-19.
Masks work the best once everybody wears them, however not all masks offer a similar protection. Once selecting a mask, inspect how well it fits, how well it filters the air, and the how many layers of filter it has.
Two important ways to make sure your mask works the best it can:
- Make sure your mask fits snugly against your face. Gaps can let air with respiratory droplets leak in and out around the edges of the mask
2. Pick a mask with layers to keep your respiratory droplets in and others’ out. A mask with layers will stop more respiratory droplets getting inside your mask or escaping from your mask if you are sick.
