Description

Advantages for wearing a fabric face mask, in case you’re considering it for yourself:

1. They keep you from touching your mouth and nose.

We have all heard how easy it is to transmit the virus from surfaces we touch to our own mouth or nose. Having a fabric barrier makes that very difficult to do once you get used to washing your hands before removing your mask.

2. They protect others from your cough.

Asymptomatic transmission of the virus happens when someone coughs or sneezes, spreading particulates through their saliva. You may think you’re fine if you’re not displaying any other symptoms, but a mask will keep your coughs contained. This is handy during allergy season!

3. They offer some security from others.

While the holes in fabric are large enough for the virus to pass through them, some barrier to coughs and droplets is better than none. If you can, fashion a mask with openings on the side so you can insert an additional filter layer.
