The 2020 pandemic has forever changed the world. No longer will we look at each other and the way we do things as the same anymore. Despite countries slowly lifting bans and bringing travel back, certain practices – like wearing of face masks – may soon become part of our daily routines.
Why are Face Masks Important
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC recommends the use of face masks as an effective method for helping to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Not all masks are made equal though. To ensure you’re getting the right protection, it should:
- completely cover the nose and mouth; and
- not have any gaps and fit neatly against the sides of the face.
When handling them, make sure to only hold them by the ear loops, cords, or head straps. Always wash your hands after removing your mask. You can also wear goggles or face shields with face masks so your eyes are protected from droplets.
Do you feel uncomfortable wearing face masks? In special cases, the CDC does exempt certain individuals from this requirement. These are children under two years of age, people with disabilities, and persons whose work may be at risk if they wear a mask.
If you’re not used to it, you can try wearing it for short periods of time at home until you feel at ease with it. Another solution is to adjust the fit of the mask. You can do this by either using a mask fitter or brace, or knotting the ear loops. Choose a face mask with a nose wire for better fit, especially for glass wearers. Press the nose wire gently so it conforms to the shape of the bridge of your nose.
For more information on proper face mask practices, please visit the CDC guide for wearing masks.

Even if restrictions have been lifted in your area, continue to think of face masks as preventive measures against viruses and sickness. Always follow the recommended safety measures by the CDC and your local government units.
