3-layer masks are now recommended

Posted by Admin Medlee on

On November 4th, 2020, Canada’s chief public health officer appealed to Canadians to wear three-layer, non-medical masks with filters to limit transmission of COVID-19 as the country copes with a second wave.

According to the updated guidelines, a mask or face covering can be homemade or purchased and should be made of at least three layers, two of which should be made of a tightly woven fabric, such as cotton or linen, while the middle layer should be a filter-type fabric, such as non-woven polypropylene fabric.

The masks should also be “large enough to completely and comfortably cover the nose, mouth, and chin without gaping.”

“We are learning a lot more and this is just another update to the recommendations,” Dr. Theresa Tam said. “It’s been updated because now we are entering (fall/winter) and people are moving indoors more and we know that the closed, crowded, poorly-ventilated environments where people may be face-to-face with others increases the risk of spread, and adding in more layers of protection including a three-layer mask will increase that added protection.”

Furthermore, as flu season is fast approaching, it is highly recommended that we add an extra layer of filter to our masks to increase protection. Although mostly invisible to the naked eye, the air we breathe is full of tiny particles of; chemicals, soil, smoke, dust or allergens, in the form of liquids, gases, or solids. When we burn fossil fuels for energy use and production, the release of gases and chemicals are created air pollution, posing a risk to human health and the planet as a whole. These minuscule airborne hazards are referred to as particulate matter, or PM.
