Masking our problems

“It just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective.” That’s what Anthony Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told the “Today” show recently about the hottest trend in masks – double masking.

We ourselves like to wear a paper one under a fancy cloth one for fun. This Christmas we received a trio of terrific Alexander the Great face masks, including one via Fine Art AmericaWe also like Echo’s seasonal red and green Antique Holly print on black and, anticipating spring, Swaddle Designs three-layer cotton chambray face mask in a pink and green rose print on white. (Men might enjoy Echo’s au courant buffalo check (red and black) print or the athletic-looking masks by Crep Protect, which contain a pocket for a tissue or cloth for even more protection, maker of sneaker shields.)

Always adjust your elastics so that the mask covers your face from your nose to your chin but is not so tight that your ears turn down.

The virus is still with us, so do yourself and everyone else a favor and mask up. And that now goes double.
