As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise, discussions around preventive measures are resurfacing in the public space. In particular, it seems the issue of whether or not to mask is a controversial topic on everyone’s lips these days.

The effectiveness of wearing a mask is no longer in question and experts are unanimous on the importance of this measure to curb the spread of the coronavirus. According to the quick review of the literature published in October 2021 by the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ), the majority of studies have shown that wearing a mask is an effective measure that significantly reduces the transmission of respiratory viruses. In a recent interview, Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist in Toronto, indicated that people should wear masks indoors, in confined areas, or in crowded places. This is a message that Ottawa Public Health, among many others, echoed in the past few weeks. As such, it is expected that masks will continue to be a part of people’s daily lives.

For those who are considering or are actively wearing masks, a reminder that the choice of which mask you use can have a significant impact on the effectiveness of blocking and filtering out the particles that spread virus such as COVID-19.
