Although disposable face masks block large particles from entering your mouth, a more tight-fitting N95 respirator mask is far more effective at protecting you from airborne illnesses. While both of these masks can help protect you from getting a viral infection, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, Director National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases said in a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention briefing on Wednesday, February 5 that the general public in the US does not need to run out and buy them right now, because the risk of contracting the virus in the US is so low.

People commonly wear face masks in East Asian countries to protect themselves from smog and respiratory diseases, but these masks aren't designed to block tiny particles f



A face mask's main purpose is to keep out the liquid of another infected person's sneeze or cough from entering your mouth or nose (gross, I know). Wearing one can protect you from getting sick if you're in close contact with someone who is ill and also help prevent you from spreading your illness to someone else. Face masks can also help prevent hand-to-mouth viral transmissions, because you can't directly touch your own mouth while wearing one.
