Why You Should Wear A Cloth Mask Over Your Surgical Mask
Many states have a face covering requirement in light of COVID-19. To check the requirements for your state, check this table out.
We’ve talked about the benefit of stacking masks -- our public health educator, Sameerah Wahab, said in theory, the more filtration, the better, just as long as you’re taking care to sanitize the fabric after each use and dispose of your Monster Aid 3-ply mask after wearing it.
A cloth mask alone isn’t the best means of protection, according to our filtration chart. A bandana, for example, only has 1-3% air filtration, compared to surgical masks (the kind we sell!) at ~30% air filtration.
Layering masks, however, adds an extra barrier to your Monster Aid mask. And, if the standard blue isn’t your color, you can style your facial covering with a unique fabric, like a bandana.
Here's a graph we made to help remember the steps to safely applying a face mask, and layering a fabric mask on top!
