One more on Gaiter-gate

More on gaiters. Shows the potential for hysteria and supposition to accelerate inaccurate information, even within mainstream media. Since I am guilty of propagating this story, here’s another reasoned view. The intent of the first story was never to damn one type of mask over another. The common sense in all stories should come through. If you can breathe a lot easier through one mask over others, I’d suggest either a) the material is porous, b) the mask is ill fitting, or c) a combination of both. I suspect there is no magical material or mask, just common sense.

Save the Gaiters!

A small study prompted fears that neck gaiters could spread more virus droplets than they stop. But new research shows that those face coverings can protect just as well as other cloth masks.
