Tampa Bay Times coronavirus coverage

Fears of a coronavirus pandemic have spurred run on face masks worn to reduce chances of inhaling airborne virus from someone elses coughs and sneezes. Store shelves are empty and so are the stockrooms of online e-tailers, from mighty Amazon to drug store chains like CVS. Now what? Well, for the record, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesnt recommend face masks for those who are sick or caring for someone with disease. Instead, just keep your distance from others, cover your nose and mouth if you cough or sneeze, wash your hands and stay home if youre not well. At present, level of risk in the US is very low, and routine wearing of masks is not indicate, says Dr. Peter Rabinowitz, University of Washington professor of environmental and occupational Health sciences, family medicine and global Health. Masks in general are not the first line of defense against respiratory infections. Much more important are frequent hand-washing, keeping your distance from people who are sick and coughing, and if you are sick, staying home or, if necessary, wearing a mask to avoid coughing as many droplets into the air. There are also different kinds of masks that have different levels of effectiveness. The most effective is the N 95 respirator, government certify to filter out at least 95 percent of microscopic airborne particles, including viruses. They are often aimed at industrial workers to protect them from airborne particles, but also are made for hospital workers and the general public. Respirators only work if they fit tightly around the nose and mouth, which can be tricky and they are suitable for children or fully beard men. Surgical masks offer less protection. They fit loosely around the nose and mouth, and fine, virus-laden airborne particles could be inhale with unfiltered air around their edges. So makeshift substitute like bandanna or handkerchief that fit more loosely will filter out even fewer particles. Surgical masks provide less protection than N95 masks, and my guess is that bandannas would provide even less, Rabinowitz say. Denise McPherson, Nurse Practitioner at Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, says surgical masks are chiefly designed to prevent people from spreading respiratory illness to others, but do not prevent people wearing masks from bacteria or viruses in the air. If you think you have respiratory illness, surgical mask would be the best item to wear to decrease spread to others, McPherson say. If you are well, but around someone with respiratory illness, then a respirator mask would be the best item to wear to decrease the chance of contracting illness. And to be sure, McPherson add, handkerchiefs, bandannas, and other articles of clothing do not have barriers needed to protect someone from spreading illness or from contracting illness. Masks are also designed to be disposable. Eventually, they clog up and must be dispose. Of and if you think they protect you from some viral air, be careful how you handle them.

Important to Remember

Face masks for covering your face, not skin-care type are in high demand, and fortunately for everyone, theyre also easily made at home. The CDC is now recommending that everyone, not just medical workers, wear protective covering when going outside. The purpose of wearing fabric face masks is to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, particularly in public spaces, such as grocery stores and pharmacies. Face masks are designed to prevent wearers from touching their face and prevent us from unknowingly transmitting viruses as not every carrier shows symptoms of having a virus. Material-wise, designer Tanya Taylor, whose company is producing face masks for medical workers, recommends using common household items that you already have in supply. You will need something for the mask itself, such as a piece of clothing or cloth that you are okay cutting up, and something to keep it around your face, such as hair ties, rubber bands, ribbon, or even shoelaces, say Taylor. Scott Segal, chair of anesthesiology at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, advises using fabric with quilter's cotton with a thread count of at least 180. You want fabric that is breathable but does not let in substantial amount of light. You do want to use woven fabric, like batik, but you don't want to use knit fabric, because holes between knit stitches are bigger, Segal told NBC News. Another key is making sure fabrics are clean and machine-washable. Ideally, you would use 100 percent cotton or poly / cotton blend and at least three layers, but any covering is better than none. The mask should be snug but comfortable and should fit over your nose and past your chin, said Taylor. On the CDC website, it is advised that individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing. It That being say, it is important to note face masks will not be able to completely prevent viruses from spreading. It is absolutely vital to continue practicing social distancing and limit exposure to spaces where viruses may be highly active. The CDC also urges wearers to not buy medical-grade masks, as they are already in limited stock and should be reserved for essential health care workers. Here's how to make fabric face mask in three different ways. Materials recommend: bandanna, two scrunchies or hair ties, coffee filter cut filter and folded bandanna in half. Fold filter in center of folded bandanna. Fold top down. Fold bottom up. Place two scrunchies on either side of the facemask at approximately face width apart. Take two ends of bandanna and fold into each end securely Pick up face mask Using scrunchies as ear holders
