If you are like me, then you are a germophobe and have already changed out of your clothes 3 times today, showered twice (after the grocery store & after working out in my make-shift garage gym), and washed your hands about 50 times (that’s roughly 16 minutes a day of a 20 second hand wash). I feel like everyone in the world is saying “WASH YOUR HANDS” but really it should be “WASH YOUR HANDS AND WEAR A MASK”. Why isn’t everyone on this bandwagon of wearing a mask? Do you wear pants in the winter to protect yourself from the cold? Then I think everyone should wear a mask to protect themselves from any transmission! HELLO! A PANDEMIC IS HERE. Why am I not seeing everyone with masks on? Masks are worn to prevent transmission to others and/or protect others from being infected by the wearer.
FACT: A key transmission route of COVID-19 is via droplets that fly out of mouths— that includes when we speak, not just when we cough or sneeze. A portion of these droplets quickly evaporate, becoming tiny particles whose inhalation by those nearby is hard to prevent.
FACT: Countries that flattened the curve used mask in public.
FACT: A single cough can produce up to 3,000 droplets. There have been plenty of studies showing that we SPRAY THOUSANDS OF DROPLETS invisible to the naked eye into the air just by uttering the words “stay healthy”.
While wearing a mask might bring a little discomfort, and make it harder to spot facial expression of those we are talking to, those are a small price to pay for keeping the people around us safe and well.
Conclusion: Don’t be jerk. Just wear a mask.
Masks my family prefers:
My husband and I usually wear the Skyscreen KN95 masks when we go to the grocery store, Costco, and places where there are more than 50+ people around.
I wear the 3-Ply pink disposables for when I am stopping by and getting gas, picking up a script at a pharmacy, dropping off at the post-office, or simply running a quick errand.
Our son likes to wear the Cloth Mask with BFE95 Filter sewn-in. He is 5 years old and the mask is somewhat loose on him, but we like to keep him protected he is with us running errands, waiting at the doctors office, and basically anytime he is in public.
So from our family to yours… Please Stay Safe & Wear A Mask!
