Would You Wear An Allergy Mask?

With the seasonal flu, the H1N1 flu, SARS, and even Avian flu still making news on a daily basis, people are trying to find any protection against becoming sick this fall. Most people cannot afford to miss time from work in our current economy. You can find hundreds and thousands of articles on the internet with all kinds of advice.

One measure that can help is wearing an allergy mask. For most people, there is still a stigma to wearing these very effective healthy masks. Somehow we need to help remove this stigma. I found this article from last month’s Baltimore Sun that addresses mask wearing and other flu prevention methods.

In the blog, “Would You Wear A Face Mask To Protect Yourself?” the author Kelly Brewington talks about the effects that wearing a mask had in China during the SARS outbreak of 2003. Over 75% of the population used a face mask during the outbreak and this helped reduce the spread of the illness.

With the constant reporting on H1N1 and vaccinations, we have noticed a steadily increasing volume of customer questions about allergy masks and what each mask will protect against. In response, this month we are updating all of our mask information on the website to help answer any questions that you might have.
