Do you think that you need a face mask to protect yourself against COVID-19? At the rate they have been bought up in stores, it appears that a large section of the nation believes that they need them, but in reality, they are just hurting those that truly need them and now don’t have access to them. The N95 face masks are meant to be used by those that have the disease or those that are around high-risk people, such as elderly ones and those with heart problems. For the general public, there is very little benefit to wearing a mask. In fact, wearing a mask might instill in you an undue sense of security. Social distancing is going to be a much better tool in the fight against the virus. The droplets containing the virus are heavy and won’t stay around in the air for long, but touching a contaminated surface and then adjusting your face mask could expose you to the virus.
