COVID-19 continues to spread even in the humid heat of summer, so it's important to keep wearing masks and maintaining social distancing to prevent transmission.

What Is The Best Face Mask?

Several months now into the COVID-19 pandemic and people are still wondering what exactly is the best face mask.  What is the best face mask to buy to keep you safe?  What is the difference between N95 Respirators, disposable surgical masks, cotton face masks, or home made cloth or paper masks?  With tons of information available at any moment on the internet, people can most certainly search social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram, YouTube, and others, as well as the major news outlets like The New York Times for the do’s and don’ts of mask wearing, but with all this information overloading our brains, it can truly be difficult sometimes to decode everything. Of course, there’s the essential information available to the public on the CDC’s website.  However, given their continuous message-shifting and the fact that new information about the virus basically comes out by-the-minute,  it can be quite confusing when one decides to try to follow along; even more, it can be super difficult for anyone to pick out the most important details from the information out there when so many are already so overwhelmed with work-from-home status, kids not in school, etc.  Many are experiencing information overload because their minds are simply just not able to shake away their basic levels of fear, anxiety, or depression that many of us have had to live with all throughout 2020 ever since Coronavirus landed in the United States.
