Without vaccines and with the rapid spread of the coronavirus and the threat of infection in many countries, the use of a protective mask in public places is becoming mandatory.
Fabric masks are a practical option but few people understand how they actually work. In fact, face masks prevent you from spreading the virus rather than protecting you from infection. Of course, if we all use them, infection rates will drop.
Homemade and reusable face masks must be washed in hot water every day.
Are visors a good option?
The use of surgical masks, fabric masks or face visors does not replace thorough hand-washing. You should also avoid touching your face. The clear visor is the most reliable protective tool used by many workers in different types of occupations, but it does not mean we should all be wearing them when out and about.
Should I wear a face visors?
You should always follow local regulations. But if visors are not mandatory, wearing them may only be needed if you work in a high-risk environment or are caring for someone with coronavirus. To prevent the spread, follow social distancing, wear a face mask or face covering, avoid large gatherings and practice good hand hygene.
