Cloth masks are stylish, but many health experts are now recommending that we upgrade our mask choice. Surgical masks (the disposable ones) or N95/KN95 masks, three-ply masks all offer higher degree of protection. You can learn more about masking strategy in this article from NPR.
One note of warning – there are a lot of fake N95/KN95 masks out there, so don’t order the first thing you see on Amazon.
