With new COVID variants popping up in the United States, it's likely time to step up your mask game. Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci shares that double masking makes "common sense" and is likely more effective. The CDC, however has not recommended double masking at this point, but they do recommend people to choose masks that fit well with "2 or more layers of washable, breathable fabric."
Fans of double masking recommend wearing a surgical mask underneath a cloth mask, or to double up on your cloth masks. The Doctors recommend considering double masking if you have to head to a grocery store, post office, doctors office, pharmacy or any place you need to spend a significant time indoors.
Here are a selection of surgical and cloth masks to wear if you're planning to double up.
