In the midst of this ongoing crisis, it’s important for us to remember to stay healthy.
Wearing N95 masksis a good way to combat the air pollution, but for those of you who can’t get your hands on some, or find them cumbersome, a regular Dura mask will work in a pinch.
Putting 2 layers of tissue between the mask and your face improves its filtration ability by 75 to 90%, which gives it almost the same level of effectiveness as a standard N95.
Dura masks are generally more comfortable, less expensive, and easier to find than N95 masks.
If you’re braving the outside world today, bring one for yourself, and another for a friend. In times like these, there’s nothing more important than community and personal safety.
