Your New Facial Mask Label Guide


It should be obvious that for a mask to be useful, it must cover both the mouth and the nose. But, as you may have noticed, not everyone has received the memo yet.As for the type to wear, there are different options. The World Health Organization says that a cloth mask acts as a barrier to prevent the spread of the virus but should be worn properly and used in conjunction with other measures to protect yourself, such as hand washing and avoiding to touch your face. Homemade fabric coverings can also protect others and can be cleaned and reused.

When was the last time your mask encountered the inside of your washing machine? Well, experts recommend washing masks or cloth coverings after each use. You read correctly.

With disposable masks, the clue is in the name: do not reuse them (and also do not throw them on the ground after wearing them). According to the Institute for Global Change, wearing disposable masks for a short period, such as when traveling or shopping, protects others. But wear them for a long time and they may get soggy and offer limited protection.

Steaming glasses after wearing your mask? Suggestions include wearing your glasses slightly lower than usual and breathing down into the mask.
