Frequently Asked Questions for N95 Mask

Why do face masks matter with this coronavirus?

With the new coronavirus, known as SARS-CoV-2 , the largest amount of viral shedding, or transmission, happens early in the course of the disease. Therefore, people may be contagious before they even start to show symptoms.

Moreover, scientific models suggest that up to 80 percent of transmission stems from asymptomatic carriers of the virus.

Emerging research suggests that N95 mask use may help limit the transmission of the virus by people who don’t realize that they may have it.

It’s also possible that you could acquire SARS-CoV-2 if you touch your mouth, nose, or eyes after touching a surface or object that has the virus on it. However, this is not thought to be the main way that the virus spreads.

When Should You Wear a Mask?

The CDC recommends that everyone over age 2 wear cloth face masks in public places where it’s hard to stay 6 feet away from other people.

Wear a face mask if you are sick and around other people or animals, even at home. Caregivers should use them when cleaning and disinfecting a sick person’s bedroom or bathroom.

If you need to call 911, put on a mask before medical help arrives

Remember that a N95 mask should be used in addition to other COVID-19 safety steps. It doesn’t replace them. You still need to limit your contact with other people, wash your hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds, and keep common surfaces clean.

Unsure About Actually Wearing a Face Mask? Here’s How (and Why) to Do It

Tips for wearing one properly + how to wash it To mask or not to mask? That has been the question on all of our minds for the last few weeks. Before, the consensus was for only those who are considered high risk for the coronavirus (COVID-19) to wear them.

But in light of recent findings, the CDC now recommends that we wear masks or cloth face coverings in public settings that might make it hard to practice social distancing etiquette and that’s why we also recommend that you and your family members consider making it a part of your daily routine,” says Aaron Hamilton, MD “Wearing a cloth face mask is recommended as an extra layer of protection,” Dr. Hamilton says. “That means that you should still be following any shelter-in-place orders in your community. But when you’re venturing out to the grocery store, pharmacy or hospital, it’s wise to wear one.”

When is it important to wear a mask?

The CDC recommends wearing cloth face masks in public settings where compliance with physical distancing measures may be difficult to achieve and maintain. This is key in areas where community-based transmission is high.

This includes, but is not limited to, settings such as:

  • grocery stores
  • pharmacies
  • hospitals and other healthcare settings
  • job sites, especially if physical distancing measures aren’t feasible

How to wear a face mask effectively:

It’s all about getting the right fit and covering your bases, Dr. Pate says. “A mask should cover the bridge of the nose, mouth, and both lateral sides of the cheeks to prevent air from entering,” she says. “There are many people who improperly wear one or get the incorrect size with the nose exposed, which defeats the purpose of wearing a mask in the first place.” The best materials for DIY masks based on filtration and breathability are cotton-made fabrics, specifically denim, 80- to 120-thread count cotton bed sheets or a 100% cotton T-shirt, or a thick (.4 to .5 mm) canvas material, according to new research conducted by Smart Air . The company suggests holding up your fabric to light; the more opaque it is, the better. Several masks come with an opening for a removable filter like a coffee filter or a paper towel . A recent study out of Northwestern University also found that when a nylon stocking was worn over a mask, it worked even better by creating a tighter seal in some cases even outperforming medical-grade surgical masks.

Do face masks work?

CDC experts say recent studies show that a significant portion of individuals who have the coronavirus don’t have any symptoms (in other words they’re “asymptomatic”). And furthermore, those who eventually develop symptoms (or those who are “pre-symptomatic”) can spread the virus to others before they show any symptoms.

“The coronavirus can spread among people who are less than 6 feet apart, whether that’s by talking to one another, coughing or sneezing,” Dr. Hamilton explains. “This holds true even if none of those people notice symptoms commonly reported with COVID-19, like fever, shortness of breath or coughing.” Dr. Hamilton says a cloth mask will not prevent you from breathing in respiratory droplets that carry a virus, like COVID-19. But it will help to protect others from you if you happen to be infected, with or without symptoms. Furthermore, cloth masks help to reinforce social distancing and good cough etiquette, which ultimately will help to slow how far the virus spreads.

Cloth masks can also prevent you from touching your face, and can be a visual reminder to practice social distancing, Dr. Hamilton adds.
