The face covering you utilize doesn't have to be tightly fitted, but it has to cover your nose and mouth. In the rare case that a face covering absolutely cannot be tolerated, work along with your doctor to seek out an alternate solution, like a face shield. While face protections aren't considered as an alternative to masks, studies suggest they'll help to limit the spread of virus particles.

But keep in mind that social distancing and hand washing are still important safety precautions that everybody should comply with on top of facial protection. There is still such a lot to be told regarding COVID-19 but, as we all go back to old restaurants and stores and be with our families for birthdays and other celebrations.
