Hey guys Mr. Wellness here with another Wellness 101. As I mentioned before the CDC is now recommending that we all wear cloth face masks while in public. Why masks you ask? Simple cloth face coverings help slow the spread of viruses.
Some viruses like COVID 19 can be transmitted from person to person without ever showing symptoms. But masks will not protect me from you and you for me if we’re not wearing them properly. Your cloth mask should include multiple layers to help filter contaminants but just be sure to allow for breathing without restriction.
It needs to fit snugly but comfortably against the side of your face and cover your mouth and nose and be secured with ties or ear loops. Remember a mask is no good to you if your vulnerable areas are exposed be sure your hands are clean when you put it on when removing your mask remove it from the back to the front be careful not to touch your nose mouth or eyes and wash your hands immediately after.
Consider hanging your mask someplace sunny as sunlight is a natural disinfectant. To clean and sterilize your mask your old buddy mister washing machine should do the trick. Masks should be washed routinely depending on the frequency of use.
Bonus tip glasses keep fogging up on you when you wearing your mask then before you put your mask on try cleaning them with soapy water shake off the excess water and soap and lightly pat them dry with a soft tissue.
The soapy water leaves a thin film behind that should help keep your specs from fogging. Wear those masks in public folks and remember my friends wearing a mask does not make you immune to Coronavirus COVID 19 or other illnesses.
You still need to practice good hand hygiene and proper social distancing techniques to avoid illness. Don’t forget to smash that like button and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more Wellness 101.
