This Simple Trick Helps Make Your Disposal Mask More Protective
Right now, if you want to be in public in Boise you better have your face covered. Central District Health is considering putting similar rules in place for all of Ada County. We'll know more after their next meeting on Tuesday.
At this point, masks have become common place enough for us to develop preferences for what type you wear. My husband's got a stack of white cloth ones sitting on our breakfast bar at home, but it's his cloth mask with a print of Gene Simmons's KISS make-up that he loves the most.
I'll be honest, I'm lazy. Having to constantly wash and care for the cloth masks is too much work for me and another reminder of how far from normal we are right now. I'm more of the disposable mask type. That's why I have a box of them in my car for running errands. Unfortunately, they don't alwaysy fit my little head properly. That's why I thought this mask hack was really neat!
Dr. Olivia Cui, a general dentist, shared this cool video demonstrating how to not only make the masks a little more snug but a little safer too. The snugger a mask is to your face, the fewer droplets from your sneeze, cough or even shouting escape from it. Less droplets in the air = less chance of you passing on COVID-19 if you didn't know you had the virus.
To date the video has over 3.5 million views on TikTok and has been shared by some big names like Kristen Bell and Katie Couric.
