    The practice of wearing two masks has been gaining attention recently. While some health organizations are recommending it, the question remains: does doubling up on masks really make a difference?

    !function(n){if(!window.cnxps){window.cnxps={},window.cnxps.cmd=[];var t=n.createElement(‘iframe’);t.display=’none’,t.onload=function(){var n=t.contentWindow.document,c=n.createElement(‘script’);c.src=”https://cd.connatix.com/connatix.playspace.js”,c.setAttribute(‘async’,’1′),c.setAttribute(‘type’,’text/javascript’),n.body.appendChild(c)},n.head.appendChild(t)}}(document);

    If you find yourself in heavily populated areas frequently, such as public transport or crowded buildings, then double-masking may be a prudent choice. However, if your daily interactions are minimal, a single mask should suffice.

    Moreover, the primary goal of double-masking is not just about improving the filtration of your mask. Rather, it aims to provide a more secure fit for your mask. By layering a second mask or adjusting the ear loops, you can close any gaps that may compromise the effectiveness of your mask.

    For those considering double-masking, it is advisable to wear a surgical mask as the base layer followed by a cloth mask. To ensure optimal breathing and protection, avoid doubling up on the same type of mask or placing the cloth mask directly on your face. If you possess an N95 mask, refrain from layering as it may obstruct the filter.
