The current global pandemic has changed the way of life as we know it. A lot of daily habits have changed, and there are a lot of new routines everyone needs to adopt. First and foremost is the habit of face-covering or wearing a face mask whenever we are in public space.
Wearing a mask is one of the essential safety protocols to follow to prevent COVID-19 infection and limit the spread of COVID-19. Face mask use can significantly reduce the spread of the virus and slow the transmission in communities.
Various face masks serve different purposes, but for the general public, cloth masks are highly effective mainly to keep the wearer unknowingly spread the infection to others. It is suggested by experts that for people who are not working in a medical environment or dealing with COVID-19 infected patients should wear a cloth mask to conserve the necessary PPE and resources for healthcare professionals. Furthermore, to get optimum protection, wear properly fitting masks that cover your nose, mouth, and offer adequate airflow.
For better safety options, wearing a face mask should be combined with other preventative measures such as frequent hand wash and social distancing. Following precautionary measures will help everyone and can prevent COVID-19 virus transmission.
