Louisiana’s stay-at-home order has been extended until May 15 and Gov. John Bel Edwards is encouraging residents to use the next two weeks to adapt to the new normal and obtain masks as soon as possible. It has been recommended that everyone 2 years of age and up wear a mask anytime that they are around others that are not in their immediate household. If you’ve had a hard time finding a face mask, no worries! There are many options for purchasing face masks in Baton Rouge and online.
Should I be wearing a face mask outside?
It is strongly encouraged that non-healthcare workers wear fabric face coverings when they go out in public. These coverings may include cloth masks or scarves. The virus travels in small respiratory liquid droplets that we exhale when we are talking, sneezing, and coughing. Many people who have the virus and are asymptomatic can spread COVID-19 unconsciously.
Where to Buy Face Masks in Baton Rouge and Beyond
If you’re not in the mood for crafts, there are many in Baton Rouge and beyond making and selling masks. We asked the Baton Rouge Family Fun community where they were buying masks and we have compiled a comprehensive list from those recommendations. A new study has shown that some of the most effective materials for face masks ― when factoring in filtration and breathability ― are cotton, denim, and canvas. The study also shows that multiple layers of material are more effective at blocking coronavirus particles than just one single layer.
