Will a Mask Really Protect You from Coronavirus?

The N95 respirators is what healthcare professionals use. It filters out at least 95% of particles in the air. There is growing concern that if people can find and order these masks, there may not be enough available for the healthcare workers who really need them.

More and more celebrities like Kim Kardashian West, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow have been spotted running errands (when we were allowed to go outside regularly) or on planes in surgical mask and N95 respirators even posting photos of themselves on their social media.

So, the best ways to prevent contracting the coronavirus is follow the safety guidelines which are frequent handwashing with soap and water for 20 seconds, cough and sneeze into the bend of your elbow, don’t touch your face, disinfect surfaces, and practice social distancing. Follow these safety guidelines and you won’t need to wear a mask and you will free up the mask supplies for the healthcare workers who really need them.
