Omicron & Mask Strategy

Cloth masks are stylish, but many health experts are now recommending that we upgrade our mask choice. Surgical masks (the disposable ones) or N95/KN95 masks, three-ply masks all offer higher degree of protection. You can learn more about masking strategy in this article from NPR.

 

 

One note or warning – there are a lot of fake N95/KN95 masks out there, so don’t order the first thing you see on Amazon.

 

 

Reputable masks can be found from 3MHoneywellHope Health Supply or Demetech websites, or at Project N95.
