What is Double Masking?.
With the spread of the COVID-19 variants, double masking, or wearing two masks at once, “just makes
common sense,” according to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Though the CDC has not officially
recommended double masking, health
experts have encouraged layering up.
Wearing two [masks] will likely give you more protection — between 15 and 20%, Emergency physician
Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, via Bustle.
Doctors recommend a triple-layer
cloth mask with an additional filter layer
to protect against the coronavirus.
If you don’t have a triple-layer mask,
a paper surgical mask can be made more
effective by layering a cloth mask on top.
Ultimately, the key to effective double
masking is a well-fitting mask that is
snug around your mouth and nose
