The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new research on Wednesday that found wearing a cloth mask over a medical mask is one way to reduce exposure to aerosol droplets that can transmit the coronavirus. The research found that wearing a cloth mask over a medical mask significantly boosts protection. Researchers also found that tying knots on the ear loops of medical masks that attach to the mask substantially improves protection by pulling the mask closer to the face. Masks offer the best protection against the virus until enough people can get vaccinated, the CDC says.
Have you started double masking? If you don’t want to double mask, will you reduce how much you go out? If you are already reducing how much you go out, how do you feel about the idea of wearing two masks?
