In general, masks can be divided into two categories: reusable and disposable. Disposable masks include surgical masks as well as N95 and KN95 respirators. Please note that due to high demand and shortages, surgical and N95 masks should be reserved for healthcare workers and not be used by the general public.

The cloth mask is one of the most common reusable masks. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a US government agency, has advised the public to use non-valved, multi-layer cloth masks to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19. The agency states: “Cloth masks not only effectively block most large droplets (i.e., 20-30 microns and larger) but they can also block the exhalation of fine droplets and particles (also often referred to as aerosols) smaller than 10 microns which increase in number with the volume of speech and specific types of phonation. Multi-layer cloth masks can both block up to 50-70% of these fine droplets and particles and limit the forward spread of those that are not captured.”

During the pandemic, the best ways to protect yourself, your loved ones, and others are to wear a mask correctly, use other kinds of PPE for additional safety and practice social distancing. Now, let’s look at some tips on correctly putting on and handling masks.

Finally, a reminder that Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly shown how we can make a cloth mask at home and other ways to safeguard ourselves during this challenging time.
