Dirty Face Masks
Americans Admit to Wearing Dirty Masks
How clean is your face mask?
Hygiene technology company Livingaurd says a survey has found that too many people are not keeping their masks clean.
The study reportedly showed 80 percent of the people who use reusable cloth masks don’t wash them after each use, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.
8 percent said they don’t wash their masks at all.
Experts say this is concerning because studies show detectable levels of the corona virus can remain on masks for up to seven days.
More than two-thirds or respondents who use single use masks admitted to reusing them on multiple occasions.
