What are the final tips on what type of mask I should wear?  – Denver Post

NEW YORK – What’s the latest advice on what type of mask I should wear?

It depends on your situation, but health officials say it should cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly so that there is no space on the sides of your face.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also says to choose masks with two or more layers and a nasal thread to prevent air from escaping from the top. He suggests holding your mask to check if it’s blocking light, which means the fabric will likely filter out more particles.
