Additional Info About DisposableFaceMasks

While not as sustainable as reusable cloth masks, disposable masks are good to have on hand if you’re in a pinch or if you just want a quick supply of ready-to-go options. But are they as effective in protecting you and those around you from the coronavirus? And how can you tell if some options are better than others? With COVID cases increasing across the country and new more contagious variants posing an even greater threat, these questions are even more pressing than before.

According to Dr. Purvi Parikh, an immunologist with NYU Langone Health who was involved in two of the COVID-vaccine trials, the new COVID variants, combined with pandemic fatigue and vaccine misconceptions, make mask use more important now than ever. “We’re finding that upwards of 50 percent of cases are happening by asymptomatic spread. So even if you’ve been vaccinated, it is crucial to continue to wear masks because we know the vaccine prevents you from getting symptomatically sick, but we don’t know for sure yet if the vaccine will prevent you from passing the virus without symptoms,” she says. Outdoors continues to be safer than indoors, but you should still wear a mask while walking with a friend in the park and stay at least six feet away — if not more. “We say six feet as the general marker, but we’ve seen evidence that the virus can spread at ten feet or 12 feet.” She also recommends keeping trips to the grocery store and other indoor spaces brief. For times when you can’t avoid spending more time in close quarters with other people, like on a plane or at a doctor’s appointment, doubling up on masks (like we saw a lot of at the inauguration) is an easy way to lower your risk.
The very best disposable face masks, of course, are N95 masks — the gold-standard pandemic masks, approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which filter out 95 percent of airborne particles. But the CDC recommends that the public not buy N95 masks, to ensure there’s a supply for health-care workers. There are also the disposable surgical masks worn by doctors and other health-care professionals, which are cleared by the FDA as meeting certain standards, but they’re not available to the general public, so they’re off the table, too. What is available are nonmedical masks.
