California Reopening-The Best Face Masks You Can Use to Reduce Corona virus Spread
After the governments have offered relaxation, there have been several debates on whether the use of masks is helpful. Now governments have imposed mandates on businesses in place of earlier orders forbidding penalties that were imposed on individuals for not wearing masks.
Despite the several debates and confusion arising, there are a growing number of scientific studies supporting the fact that the use of mass for curbing the spread of coronavirus is an effective one.
Experts are suggesting that face masks stop the spread of coronavirus in two different ways. There is evidence that wearing the mask protects the wearer. On the other hand, there is strong evidence supporting the fact that face masks also prevent a healthy person from catching the infection from an infected person.
The opening of lockdown and reopening of public places- the implications
In post-lockdown times and while COVID 19 continues to wreak havoc, various measures, like social distancing and proper hand hygiene, must be followed. Alongside this, there is also a need to use inexpensive and highly effective face masks to stay safe and flatten the COVID-19 curve.
Agencies, like the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, recommend people wear face masks to evade the transmission of coronavirus. However, to ensure effective protection and safety, it’s not useful to choose the first face mask you find. Rather, it is important to pick the ones that meet the recommended standards (ANSI, NIOSH, ISO and more). It will ensure that the face mask you are using provides complete protection and comfort without compromising breathability.
