A Guide To Masks
According to the data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Pennsylvania add 60 new deaths related to the coronavirus; The data increased by 30 in Texas. What’s more, the number of new deaths of the last week has risen over six hundred. It is terrible! Perhaps masks should be mandatory in these areas with high numbers of Covid-19 cases, especially in crowded indoor public places.
Who should wear a mask?
Due to the search and development of vaccine, so many people are fully vaccinated. However, in order to maximize protection and prevent the spreading of the Covid-19 virus, people who have been vaccinated had better wear a mask in indoor public places if they are living in an area with high transmission like the above three states. Generally speaking, it is no necessary to wear a mask outdoor for those who have been vaccinated.
In areas with high numbers of new deaths as well as new cases, everyone should wear a mask in outdoor public places no matter they are vaccinated or not. Chinese are mandatory to wear masks on all of the public transports such as buses, subways, and taxis even those who have been vaccinated.
Children under 2 years are allowed not to wear masks but the parents have to try to protect them from virus by keeping them indoor as well as keeping themselves in safety. Everyone older than 2 years old should wear a mask in indoor public places but if you have been fully vaccinated you can choose to not wear a mask in outdoor settings.
How to select a mask?
Generally speaking, buying a dozen of disposable surgical masks is sufficient but there are still so many people who spring for masks labeled “surgical” N95. But N95 respirators should be prioritized for healthcare personnel especially in areas suffering from a shortage of medical supplies.
There are some types of masks designed with exhalation valves or vents, a perfect design offering room for bacteria and viruses getting in. So you had better not choose these masks which are designed for industry.
Now we are going to the shopping stage. As we all know, disposable surgical masks are designed with two or more layers of washable and breathable fabric. So we can check whether your masks are breathable or not firstly. And then we should check whether the masks ropes are connected firmly or not, otherwise, it is difficult to wear with only one side of rope or without ropes when you forgot to prepare a spare mask.
How to wear masks correctly?
It is undoubted that only when you wear a respirator correctly can you be protected by it. We are going to list some do’s and don’ts.
Before wearing a mask, you should make sure that your hands are clean.
The correct wearing method is to make sure the mask covers your nose and mouth and can fully cover your chin. And the most important is to ensure that fits snugly against the sides of your face.
