Will a Mask Really Protect You from Coronavirus?

Protecting myself

By now, I’m sure you’ve seen people walking around in a variety of masks in an attempt to protect themselves from the coronavirus, but are the masks really beneficial? Are they the right type? Are they on properly?

Masks are sold out all over the country. Even Amazon, the world’s largest company, can’t get enough masks for workers in its warehouses. Some healthcare professionals can’t find masks to do their jobs safely. If you are lucky enough to find a mask, wearing masks can give you a sense of security, but maybe a false sense of security. You may feel as if you are shielded from a virus entering your noise or mouth (even your eyes), but because you’re feeling invisible, you may get careless with the handwashing, and face touching.
