FACE MASKS HAVE CHANGED all about the way we live: how we eat, how we exercise, even how we smile (raise your hand when you’ve learned the meaning of the word “smize” this year)
Face masks are little more than a strip of light fabric and a few cords. You are still our best hope to stop the spread of COVID-19 and get our lives back to normal. Or an approach to it.
Until then, new questions will arise every day. You may have problems with the difference between an N95 and a KN95 mask. (Guilty.) You might want something more stylish than Dental hygienist chic. Or maybe you just have to convince Uncle Rick to wear a mask –any Mask – unless he wants to skip Thanksgiving this year.
These are the questions we asked some of the world’s finest doctors, immunologists, stylists, and others to create the guides below. Use them to clear the confusion – and do your part to put COVID-19 behind us for good.
