I think we can all agree that one of the most striking lifestyle changes caused by the coronavirus pandemic is mask-wearing. Face masks have become our main accessories since we have to wear them in public and crowded places. And we’ll have to wear masks a long time from now on until herd immunity is achieved. While the COVID vaccines brought a lot of good news to finally putting an end to the pandemic, we have to wait a little longer until we’ll be able to throw away our masks and hug our loved ones without putting them at risk of infection.
Now more than ever, health experts are urging people to start using higher quality masks that offer more protection, considering we have two new COVID variants present in the United States, the U.K. mutation and the South African one. Believe it or not, masks are currently the most efficient tools that can slow the spread of the virus and keep us safe.
