806 Health Tip: The Type Of Mask You Use Does Matter
I still find it surreal to see so many people walking around with masks on. I never thought that this is what 2020 had in store for us. I don't know how many times I get to the door at Walgreens or United and have to walk back to grab my mask.
It's still something that is still taking me some time. I have several types of masks. I have a few disposable ones in my possession.
I bought several cloth ones from a friend of mine who has been making them as a side business.
I just bought a few of these because they are so light too. Who would have thought that not only do we have several masks we have several types. Oh and we have our favorites too.
I started seeing a lot of my friends wear those neck fleeces, otherwise known as Gaiter masks. They seemed great. I mean you have it readily available there on your neck and just pull it up as you enter a store. That would limit my trips back out to my car for forgetting it that is for sure. They seemed a lot lighter so I ordered some over the weekend.
They have not come in yet but then I read how they are not the best to wear. They are not the safest. They throw those in the same category as using a bandana. Neither of those two block a lot of particles. Those saliva particles get through and can float in the air longer.
Ugh. I hate to read that because they seem to be so much more convenient for me who forgets to grab one out of the car. So maybe when I get mine in I will see if there is a way that I can fold it enough to have a double layer. I mean it was a heck of a deal. I was able to order 5 of them for $20.
