Personal Protective Equipment & Medical Masks have been shown to lower our risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19.
In recent months, the world-wide pandemic by the name of COVID-19 has changed the world’s safety protocols and each and every community has had to adjust the new “normal” of living. COVID-19 is a type of corona virus that has been shown to cause a variety of mild to fatal symptoms. Certain precautions are now being taken by government leaders around the world to ensure every individuals safety and health. Because a cure or vaccine has not been found at this time, it is of the utmost importance that we take the necessary actions to protect ourselves and those who are the most vulnerable to this life-threatening disease. Personal Protective Equipment has been shown to lower our risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19.
Since the virus enters the body through the mouth, nose, and eyes, the use of a personal protective equipment such as a mask, reduces the transmission of the virus from person to person. It is being encouraged and in some cities mandated that each individual have a mask in their possession. Government leaders are leaning towards this rule and implying it because a mask has the ability to protect us from inhaling the virus that has been shown in preliminary studies to hang in the air. The virus is still being researched, however, wearing a mask will still protect you from inhaling infected particles. It is necessary to wear a mask to ensure the safety of you and others around you.
