Face Mask FAQ

How your mask could protect others
Even a simple mask is very effective at trapping droplets from your coughs and sneezes.

A recent study published in Nature from the University of Hong Kong and the University of Maryland asked 111 people, infected with various viral illnesses (influenza, rhinovirus and a more-mild coronavirus), to exhale into a giant funnel. Sometimes their noses and mouths aren't covered; other times they used a simple, not-particularly-well-fitted mask.

Without the masks, the infected people exhaled contagious droplets and aerosols, tiny particles that linger in the air, about 30 percent of the time they were tested.

When the infected patients wore a mask, it blocked nearly 100 percent of viral droplets and some of the aerosol particles.

"If we look at all the results together, we found that masks were able to stop most virus-laden respiratory droplets and some of the virus-laden said Ben Cowling, at the School of Public Health of the University of Hong Kong, and the s senior author.
Always wash your hands first.

Don't touch the fabric part of the s essentially the germ filter, and you don't want to spread whatever germs it has trapped.

Use the ear loops or ties to secure your mask and to remove it.

The coverage area should go from near the bridge of your nose to down under your chin and stretch about halfway or more toward your ears.

Pull the ties and loops so that it fits as snugly as possible against your face.

If your mask has pleats, the folded side should be down.
The recommendation is to wear a mask at all times in public spaces because we don't know who has the virus and who doesn't. It's also more socially responsible to wear a mask, even if re outside.
A mask is only needed in the home if someone is sick.

The patient should be confined to a separate room with no or minimal contact with the rest of the household (including pets) and should use a separate bathroom if possible.

Both patient and caregiver should wear masks when in contact with each other.
These masks fit tightly to the face and have the highest filtration efficiency, blocking 95 percent of particles of 0.3 microns or larger. An N95 mask protects medical workers who come into contact with high doses of the virus while visiting and carrying out medical procedures on multiple patients.
