Take care of your body: Remember that the best medicine is education and prevention—DraMacn
Different types of masks provide different levels of protection against the virus and users should base their choice on the level of risk they could potentially face.
Cloth masks prevent large water droplets from reaching you. The virus can still pass, but in such small quantities that your body can fight against it and help provide immunity.
People typically wear cloth or other face coverings that don’t completely prevent the virus from infecting the wearer, though medical grade surgical masks offer more protection.
Nonetheless, these don’t have the same level of protection as N95 or P2 “respirator” masks worn by many health-care workers.
Additionally, how we wear the mask matters, as touching it often and not completely covering the nose and mouth renders it ineffective.
