I hope you're doing well.
As the discussions continue on the end of the COVID-19 lockdown and social distancing measures, you may have some questions about the use of protective face masks.
We've made a little guide to help us all learn how to properly use and wear a mask! Take a look at it below!
Have you been able to obtain any masks for you and your loved ones? Where did you find them? Do you currently or are you planning on using them every time you go out?
Feel free to share with us here! We're here to help on another, especially in this time of public health crisis.
Beginning of the discussion - 5/11/20COVID-19 masks: Are you going to continue wearing a mask after you've had the vaccine? https://www.carenity.us/forum/long-covid/lets-talk-about-covid19/coronavirus-all-about-masks-1893

@Courtney_J Thank you for this! I couldn't get my hands on any masks myself, so I've been making them for myself and my family. I wear them every time I go out and I probably will continue to in the coming weeks just to be safe.

@Courtney_J Thank you for this! I hadn't thought about touching the mask! It seems so obvious now that I think of it, how dumb of me!

After using my mask I place it on the dash of my car which is sanitized and leave in the direct sunlight. I use about 3 different ones alternating giving them time to sanitize. I received this info from a first responder who stated this process allows you to reuse the mask. The mask can also be placed on a window seal inside your home for sunlight.

How are you doing?
Now that the vaccination campaign in the US is really progressing and we're starting to see the COVID case numbers in decline, the question of wearing masks has come to mind for many. Some regions have even started easing mask requirements.
What do you all think? Will you continue to wear your mask after you've gotten both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine? Will you wear one when you're sick, for example? Or will you say goodbye to them forever once things are "back to normal"?

I don't wear one now unless I am at doctors office or I am told I need one even with my type 1 diabetes. I have so bad anxiety and ptsd that I start freaking out with them. So I won't continue with them
