You can also obtain these masks from Custom Earth Promos website, and available in many different sizes and shapes.
Till the medical researchers and scientists come out with suitable vaccine to prevent this virus, we have to live with these masks and one should always wear them whenever they are going out to any public places where many other people are also present.
Let us discuss in this write up, how we can get maximum out of these masks, so that we may remain protected from coronavirus and also prevent its further spread.
- Treat this mask as biohazard
You should not share your mask with anybody rather it must be isolated from the rest of the family. Never leave your mask on your kitchen counter or on dining table where any other person may also be inadvertently using it.
When you are not using it then always keep it in a safe place.
- Keep washing your hands by using soap whenever you remove your mask
It is mandatory to wear such masks whenever you are going out on the street or any other public places where many other people are also present. However, when you return back to home you must remove the mask and thoroughly wash your hands by using soap or use a hand sanitizer.
- Don’t clean N95 mask, but reuse with proper care
Although initially public was barred from use of N95 masks, as there was terrible shortage of these masks for medical professionals, who needed such masks more than general public. However, as the supply of these masks improved, now people can also buy them from the market for their personal use.
These masks offer better protection as compared to other type of masks. However, you need to make sure that you choose mask that properly fits your face. You may not wash them but with proper care you can reuse them.
- Clean your home-made face masks regularly
You can also use home-made masks that can be made with any suitable cloths that can either be any fabric like your kitchen towel, T-shirt, bandana or pillow cloth etc. These home-made masks can also protect you against coronavirus. However you need to maintain a safe distance from people around you.
Good part of these masks is that you can wash them like any other cloth in your washing machine using detergent that you generally use for cleaning your clothes.
Home-made masks are however less effective as compared to N95 masks.
