Are Face Masks Effective at Preventing Transmission?

Absolutely — that’s why they are required for so many daily activities in Canada. Even non-medical face masks can help capture your respiratory particles, and prevent you from being exposed to the infectious respiratory particles of others. According to the Government of Canada, stores, schools, businesses, workplaces, and public transit are all areas where face masks may be required or recommended.

Should I Wear a Face Mask in Places Where They Aren’t Required?

This is a personal choice, of course, but when you’re out in public areas, you should always keep a look out for posted signs recommending that you wear a face mask. These recommendations are usually posted in high-traffic areas where you can be exposed to the respiratory droplets of people from outside of your household. It’s always a good idea to keep a supply of face masks for personal use.

What Kind of Facemask Should I Buy?

There are a few different types of face masks that can increase your level of protection and help slow the spread of COVID-19. From disposable masks and reusable cotton masks, to face shields and the medical-grade, KN95 face masks, it really comes down to what level of protection you want, what your day-to-day activities are, and how much money you want to spend. Whatever you decide, the most important thing is that you order yours from a reliable supplier with a proven track record of offering high-quality products.
