Masks are like underwear for your face. The whole time you wear it, it collects all the waste products and water vapor you exhale. Plus, it stays pretty close to body temperature, so it’s a warm, wet environment for all the microbes you’ve breathed out that like those conditions. After you take it off and it dries, it might seem okay, but would you put on a pair of paper underwear you’d been wearing for weeks after a shower just because they’re dry and you can’t see anything wrong with them? Very, very few people would because they know things can be dirty without looking dirty.

Masks are essentially vector blockers. They don’t stop water droplets and vapour completely, but they do help lower the distance or radius these droplets can travel. Masks are just one tool used and must be combined with social distancing and hand washing to be the most effective. Over time the mask will become more damp and touching it will spread moisture to your hands and face. Fresh masks lower this risk.

Again it should be stressed, masks are not the single answer. They are a single tool used in an arsenal of many. Cleanliness is another tool and old masks are less “clean”.

The mask works because its a tiny net catching all the dirt coming out of you. Evertually all the holes in the net are clogged with dirt, so the air has to start pushing out the sides of the mask allowing new dirt to escape
