Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 states the benefits of being with someone. It says that two people are better off than one because they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Why not apply this Biblical passage to mask safety? Masks: two is better than one.
On the Covid-19 vaccine heels came tips that surfaced from the CDC due to the virus’s new strain. As we wait for our turn for the vaccine, it can’t hurt to double up on protection against the virus spread.
The New Mask Guide:
- Choose a Mask That Has a Snug Fit. If you must, add layers inside your masks, such as filters or fabric.
- Never Combine Two Disposable Masks. Instead, try one disposable and one cloth.
- Never Combine an N95 Mask With Any Other Mask. One is enough, or you will find it hard to breathe.
- Try a Mask Brace. They make great gifts and protect the mask from lipstick.
- Face Shields. These are not recommended by the CDC to be worn alone because their effectiveness is unknown.
- Gaiters. Unless they are double-layered, stick with a snug mask.
- Knot or Ear Loop Disposable Masks. This will tighten the fit of the mask.
- Choose a Mask with a Nose Wire. This allows you to pinch tightly and helps prevent eyeglass fog.
