What to look for when shopping for masks on Etsy
Keep in mind Etsy is a third-party marketplace, so you’ll need to vet sellers before purchasing. Check reviews and the product description to make sure you’re ordering a quality product.
The CDC recommends masks fit snugly, so check the sizing information for the mask you’re ordering. Make sure there are ties or loops to secure the mask on your face.
And keep in mind many sellers do not accept returns or exchanges given the intimate nature of masks.
How effective are cloth face masks?
While a cloth mask doesn’t guarantee the same level of effectiveness as an N95 or KN95 mask with a valve, the cloth is there to prevent respiratory droplets from traveling too far in the air. According to KK Cheng, a public health expert at the University of Birmingham, “It’s not to protect yourself. It’s to protect people against the droplets coming out of your respiratory tract.”
Wearing a cloth mask can at least help you from spreading the virus to others.
