Can I find a comfortable mask as the weather warms up?
I am wondering how to address this ‘safety‘ requirement, as we enter the warmer months. I have some info for you on that subject below.
The CDC recommends that unless you are outside and away from others, wearing a mask is advised. Both your mouth and nose should be covered. This is for your own safety, and for the protection and respect of others and their well-being.
The CDC insists that masks protect us. Even those persons who have received the vaccines are cautioned to continue mask wearing. Below are more guidelines from the CDC website.
– If people are not living in your household, a mask should be worn. Even youngsters who are 2 years old should have a mask on in the home when they are around people who do not live in the household, also they should wear one in public.
– Wear a mask on the train, airplanes, buses – public transportation.
– Wear a mask inside your home if someone you live with is sick with symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive for COVID-19.
Wearing a mask is likely going to be more of a challenge in getting comfortable during warmer weather.
I searched the www for recommendations on the ‘best’ lightweight masks.
Suggestions that were considered range from ‘Best Value‘ like the Old Navy cloth face mask 5- pack ($12.50) – oldnavy.gap.com , ‘Best Fitting‘ EnerPlex Resusable Face Mask 3- pack ($24.95) amazon.com. ‘Best Machine Washable‘ Vistaprint Reusable Face Mask ($18.00) – vistaprint.com
There is a very nice selection of other masks worth looking at. Use the links below for more detailed information.
