Almost every health authority agrees that face masks or coverings are an effective way of stopping the spread of coronavirus, but how do you know if your face mask is working effectively?
Everyone should be adopting face masks when they are venturing outside or going to pick up essential items from a potentially crowded place. Additionally, face masks are recommended sometimes indoors at home, depending on the severity of the outbreak in your area. It is also recommended that you clean your face mask after every outing, just to make sure you aren't carrying any bacteria back into your home.
