Best Face Masks To Use During The Pandemic
These Types of Face Coverings Will Best Protect You From COVID-19
For several months now, people have been wearing face masks when stepping out of their homes upon the advice of health authorities to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wearing masks is considered one of the best ways to protect yourself and the people around you because the novel coronavirus that transmits the disease is spread through respiratory droplets from coughing, sneezing, and talking. These droplets travel through the air and can land in the mouths or noses of people not wearing protective masks.
Studies show that masks reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth. Masks are especially important when the recommended six feet social distancing measure cannot be observed.
The best types of masks to use during the pandemic do not depend on their price tags. Rather, the best masks are those that give you the best chances of protecting yourself and others from the coronavirus.
According to health experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), these are the most effective masks for protection against COVID-19.
1. Non-medical disposable masks
The CDC does not recommend the wearing of surgical and N95 masks in public and asks that they be reserved for medical frontliners. A good option would be non-medical disposable masks that are readily available in online and retail stores. You can use and carry around a spare mask when the one you are wearing gets wet or dirty.
2. Clear masks
You can purchase or make masks with a clear plastic panel in the middle to interact with people who are deaf or hard of hearing, students learning a new language, people with disabilities, young children learning to read, and those who need to see the shape of your mouth when you speak. Make sure that you can breathe well in your mask and that excess moisture does not collect on the inside of the mask.
3. Cloth masks
Health experts recommend the use of cloth masks with at least two to three layers. They should be made from a tightly woven but breathable fabric such as cotton and cotton blends. Make sure all of your masks fit snugly on your face. You can get creative and choose different styles of fabric when you make yours.
4. Masks with filter pockets
You can buy or make your own masks that have filter packets for an additional layer of protection. Masks can be washed and reused while filters can be replaced regularly.
Alternatively, there are masks that you should avoid wearing. These include:
- Masks with exhalation valves or vents
- Masks with only one layer
- Masks made from loosely woven fabric
- Leather or plastic masks that make it difficult to breathe
- Masks that are too loose or too tight.
