Can a cloth mask protect you from COVID-19?


Today’s Video of the Day from the American Chemical Society explores whether a cloth face mask can protect you from COVID-19.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends using a cloth face mask that consists of two layers of 100-percent cotton fabric that is tightly woven. 

Double-layered cloth masks can help guard your mouth and nose from bigger airborne droplets that contain SARS-Cov-2, but the masks must be worn tight to the face for the best chance of protection.
