Do you wear a mask to protect yourself and others from the Covid19 virus? How is your mask performing for you?
Recently I purchased a nicely packaged black mask with ear loops to provide the wearer with security and comfort. I opened the sealed plastic bag it came in and put the mask on. It was comfortable.
After arriving at home, I thought it was a good idea to read the printed label. Here is exactly what it said. This is word for word including punctuation or the absence of punctuation.

Reading this label confused me and made me wonder. Does this mask provide the virus protect I bought it to provide or not?
The article below answered my question. My mask was not doing the job. Researchers at Duke University challenged a common mask-use promotional message. They said, “The notion that ‘something is better than nothing’ didn’t hold true.”
