Make the right use of masks in the times of the coronavirus

Chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam speaks about how Canadians can safely use homemade masks or scarves, the evolution of thinking around masks and whether they actually help keep people safe.

That debate is happening amid a shortage so severe that the Joint Commission, which accredits USA hospitals, said Tuesday that if facilities can't provide proper masks, health workers are allowed to bring their own from home.

And given that the US' Covid-19 case and mortality rates have rocketed, some are wondering if - apart from the administration's failure to gear up in time to contain the coronavirus - the fact that most of the public in a leaky lockdown do not wear masks is a factor.

People around the world are increasingly donning face masks to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Since the donated masks are coming from many sources, ProMedica has a process in place to ensure that the masks are cleaned and disinfected before distributing them to others.

Now, notice I mentioned masks, not N95 masks.

Medical experts have said that outdoor activities generally are safe, provided people maintain social distancing. Practicing physical distancing. Washing your hands the right way. "It doesn't substitute for keeping track of where your hands are".

Rabinowitz noted that if more people started wearing masks, there would be less of a stigma for those who are wearing them already, since there's often a mistaken assumption that those wearing masks are sick.

If virus-laden droplets land on surfaces, people can pick them up on their hands. The state has received hundreds of thousands of medical-grade surgical masks from a federal stockpile, too. Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Monday complained that the federal government promised to send IL 300,000 N95 masks, but instead sent surgical masks that are far less effective. "What can not happen is that mask supplies be diverted from those critically important situations".

In this respect, they have more closely followed the lead of health authorities in Asian countries - such as China and South Korea, where masks have been strongly encouraged and even widely distributed - than their own neighbors in Europe so far.

Face masks can greatly reduce the spread of the coronavirus disease by infected individuals and the chances of inhaling the virus.

"Let's say I were to stick a swab in your nose to see if you have COVID".

But mask-wearing has always been common in some countries during respiratory outbreaks, especially in parts of Asia.

After staffers noted that a MA health care system is requiring all employees to be masked at all times, UW Medicine responded to concerns about its masking policies last week.

He emphasized that it should not replace social distancing or the stay-at-home order.

The better informed the American people are, even if that information is highly nuanced, the sooner our nation will turn the corner in the fight against COVID-19.

So, once you have fitted your mask to your face, refrain from touching it. "If a person is symptomatic, give them a napkin". FDA Commissioner Gottlieb argued that a mask can be "an additional layer of protection for those who have to go out".

Though nobody knows yet by how much face masks protect people from infection, there are several studies in support of this argument.

Seattle Times staff reporter Hal Bernton contributed to this story. "Quality is so important if you plan to have it for the long run". Please stay home if you're ill and self-isolate from family members. On the job, if you are an essential worker? If you have a mask and it makes you feel better, at least wear it.
