Your cloth face covering may protect them. Their cloth face covering may protect you.
Love them or hate them, it seems as though face masks are here to stay. Many countries have made face masks mandatory and being prepared if that happens to you is not a bad idea. Remember, wearing a cloth face cover doesn't have to be bland!
I personally have been wearing a mask in public for months now, but for a long time, I was the only member of my circle who did. Both my parents fall in the high-risk category and I have been doing their shopping. I want to make sure I put them in as little risk as possible, and wearing a mask was an easy precaution to take. Do I like wearing a mask? Not especially. Is it worth wearing it anyways? In my opinion, yes.

As we all know now, I hope, COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice (e.g., while shouting, chanting, or singing). To reduce the spread of COVID-19, CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. I recently ordered a pack for my grandkids and they loved them.
I had been wearing home-made masks I bought cheaply on a local buy sell site. Those are not easy to come by these days and after trying these masks , I don't recommend them.
Demand for cloth face mask options has soared. When I was looking for more, I came across this site that offers some really amazing options at reasonable prices. I ordered the butterfly mask pack and they came quickly. Since I started wearing them I have gotten lots of compliments about how cute they are. I have to say, they were worth the investment. These masks were much easier to breathe in and were comfortable on my ears.

These are PM2.5 masks. The PM refers to particulate matter, also known as particle pollution. This term describes extremely small solid particles and liquid droplets suspended in the air.
These are NOT N-95 masks, surgical masks, or for medical use. Using this face covering is not a guarantee against infection or the transmission of viruses or diseases. This mask SHOULD be used in addition to practicing CDC recommendations on handwashing and social distancing.
