Debunking Mask Myths- Why It’s Important to Wear a Face Mask

"I’m not sick, so I don’t need to wear a mask"

Wearing a mask decreases the spread of the virus. Research now shows that a great many people show no symptoms at all. These people don’t know when they’re transmitting the virus, when they talk or sneeze, so wearing a mask lowers the transmission of respiratory droplets to those near you. Wear one to protect others and they in turn will protect you when wearing theirs. 

 

"Wearing a mask won’t weaken your immune system"

Your immune system will still function as normal when wearing a mask- it doesn’t have any impact on building immunity against colds and viruses.

 

"Wearing a mask won’t raise carbon dioxide levels"

For many years, health care professionals have worn face coverings and masks for extended periods of time with no adverse health reactions. Cloth masks are extremely breathable and carbon dioxide will flow freely through your mask as you breathe.

 

"Wearing a mask won’t restrict your breathing"

A mask should cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly on your face, but a breathable cotton mask will still offer protection whilst allowing you to breathe normally.  

 

 

 

"I’ve had Covid-19 so I don’t need to wear a mask"

If you’ve had Covid-19 or had an antibody test come up positive, you may believe you don’t need a mask. However, at this time there is no way of knowing if you will get the virus again if you have had it once, or how long any immunity may last. So you could potentially still spread the disease to others.

 

"I don’t need to wear a mask outside"

At this time, being outdoors is generally considered safer than being inside, so when spending time outside with members of your own household ,you don’t to be as cautious. However, in a public place where you may come within two metres of other people then it’s best to wear a mask.

 

"You don’t need to wear a mask at home"

In most cases this is true. However, if you live with others and have symptoms, it’s important to wear a mask to protect them. If you’re isolating or in quarantine, stay away from the people you live with and wear a mask when leaving your room.

 

"Cloth masks don’t protect you"

Cloth masks greatly restrict the transmission of large droplets between people and also serve as a reminder to you to stop touching your face when outside and touching surfaces which could be contaminated. They are perfectly suited to the general public and free up much needed PPE for health workers. Your cloth mask will offer enough protection to keep you safe is you wash it regularly and store it safely- consider a Pacamask case to keep your mask safe and sanitised on the go.
