Should I Even Be Wearing A Face Mask?
The CDC has recommended that everyone wear face coverings in public settings, like pharmacies and grocery stores, to avoid unwittingly spreading the virus asymptomatically.
How To Wear A Cloth NuMask
The mask should be adjusted to fit snugly using the adjustable ear loops, and should sit comfortably against the side of your face. Don't forget to mold the nose bridge to ensure a secure fit.
Why Cloth NuMasks And Not N95?
N95 masks should be reserved for medical professionals. Cloth face coverings help to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
How Layered Carbon Filters Work?
Particulate Matter (PM) are microscopic bits floating in the air that can be inhaled into the lungs, including viruses and bacteria. PM 2.5 masks can be up to 95% effective in filtering out particles 10x smaller than the Coronavirus.
Who Should NOT Use Cloth Masks?
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
What About Social Distancing?
Cloth face coverings should be used in all in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
