The Governor of Illinois and many other governors around the country have recently mandated the use of protective masks while in public per the CDC recommendations. This link will guide you to the CDC's guide on how to make cloth masks at home. For businesses, the idea of employees bringing in their own masks can be a risky one as there is no control on whether or how often they are being washed and disinfected and although they are better than nothing at all, studies show wearing cloth masks will result in much higher infection rate than non-woven masks (i.e.3-ply, KN95, or N95). For that reason, it is recommended you supply your employees with some form of a disposable non-woven mask daily or even twice daily to protective themselves and others around them.

Making Sure Your 3-Ply Masks Are Real

Unfortunately, some unscrupulous parties are passing off fake masks, sanitizers, and other products in an effort to make a quick buck. When it comes to 3-Ply masks, you can use this simple test to check if they are real:

  1. First, cut the mask open and make sure there are 3 layers (it's a 3-ply mask, after all).
  2. Make sure the outer layer is hydrophobic or water repellent
  3. Expose the middle layer to a flame. If it burns, it's fake. This layer should melt.

Proper Hand Washing Techniques

Do you know how to properly wash your hands? Check out our WHY HANDWASHING IS SO IMPORTANT AND HOW TO DO IT PROPERLY guide.

  1. Wet your hands with water. We recommend going up to at least your wrist and a bit beyond.
  2. Turn the water off and apply some soap. Most soaps are quite good at killing germs. Liquid soaps often lather the easiest.
  3. Lather the soap, meaning rub it and get it to form bubbles and foam. Add a bit more water and/or soap if needed.
  4. Keep rubbing your hands and lathering the soap for at least 20 seconds. Going up to 30 seconds is perhaps a bit better.
  5. Now, wash off your hands and dry off with a fresh towel.
These days, you need to wash your hands whenever you return to your home. Also, wash hands after caring for sick people, before you eat, while cooking, and any other time you could be exposed to a pathogen.
