Re: Disposable mask or cloth mask - which one do you wear?

@jamesle2015 @Appleblossom @BlueBay @greenpea @Snowie 

 

I have both. I made a cloth mask that has multiple layers that I made myself using a you tube video and the pattern from DHHS website.

 

 I found my cloth mask which is layered about 3 times then folded in half so really it's 6 layers once I put it on. It's comfy as I made it for my face.

3 layers to start with, 2 layers of poly cotton, 1 layer of cotton material then all 3 layers are folded in half (6 layers). There is a small opening to turn the material inside out for the breathing filter.

@Appleblossom @jem80 @BlueBay @greenpea have you seen people wearing

masks under the chin or under the nose ?

I saw an old bloke in the shopping centre today with it under his chin ....

What's the point of wearing it?

Some people wear it down the bottom of the nose but at least it's still covered

I have seen people wearing masks only covering their mouths. I have also seen people in public remove their masks to smoke which is a complete breach and puts others at risk. Not only can you spread droplets through breathing and releasing smoke it also causes asthma attacks and makes someone with asthma cough which compromises their immunity and puts them more at risk at catching other viruses.
