Now they have to remember a face mask. Face masks help reduce the spread of disease in places where social distancing is difficult, such as grocery store.

2. The main purpose of wearing a face mask during a public health crisis is to help protect others from getting sick from you. Without a face mask, you could pass an infectious disease to another person by simply sneezing or coughing. Even if you don’t feel sick, you might be carrying the coronavirus. In fact, some establishments have even made face masks mandatory in order to protect the staff and patrons.

3. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, health experts asked everyday citizens not to purchase face masks. After all, there was a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for health specialists and first responders.

4. Even though most people understand the necessity of face masks, many people don’t wear one. Unlike hats or scarves, face masks don’t look or feel good. Face masks also make it difficult to do everyday things like talk and eat. And, let’s face it – face masks even feel a bit scary when you aren’t used to wearing or seeing them in your own city or place of work. They also force us to face the reality that the world is experiencing troubling times.

5. Face masks are becoming so common, however, that they are starting to lose their stigma, even in countries where face masks were previously rare. In fact, these days, people are more uncomfortable getting caught without mask than with one. Have face masks become the new normal?
