Marcarillas y la nueva Normalidad | Visual Poetry Barcelona

The new normal whit masks

This year is being a difficult year. If in December 2019 someone had told us that things would develop as they are doing so far, no one would believe it.

" Contagion" film produced in 2011, where a virus takes over the planet and human habits have changed gender. Until February 2020 it was considered a "Science Fiction" film. Today it is listed as "Drama"

Yes, it seems that we live in a science fiction movie, but it is reality and there is a virus out there. This new normal forces us to take measures and, among them, forces us to get used to the use of a new type of garment: the mask.

In this article we want to talk about the types of masks that are available and how to use them.

Hygienic Masks

hygienic masks are a non-sanitary product that covers the mouth, nose and chin provided with a head or ear attachment.

As the Spanish Association emphasizes, they protect other people more from being infected if we wear it than the other way around. This is something that also happens with surgical ones.

You can find this type of mask in pharmacies

Surgical Masks

Surgical masks are used to avoid contact with fluid splashes in procedures such as surgeries or other.
The important thing to keep in mind with this type of mask is that they protect other people more than who wears them.
This is so because they essentially act as a barrier when sneezing or coughing. Therefore, they are intended to prevent the transmission of infectious agents by the person who carries it, but they are not effective in preventing contagion.

This type of mask is easy to find in pharmacies and even supermarkets. In theory they are single use.

Valve Masks

These do protect the user from inhaling environmental pollutants such as pathogens, chemical agents, antibiotics, cytostatics, etc.

They are the famous FFP1, FFP2 or FFP3. These names are a classification based on your mask performance. To reduce humidity within the masks themselves, they may have an exhalation valve.

They are considered "selfish masks" because they protect more those who wear them.

Reusable Street or Casual masks

Today the mask is one more garment. That is why many brands have developed their  own collections. It is important to see that this type of mask has a double layer and that the design adapts well to the shape of the face.

On the other hand, they are washable and reusable masks. It is important to protect yourself but we cannot forget to protect the environment and this type of mask is a good choice in this regard.

The face is a delicate part of our body and it is not used to being covered all the time. Choosing organic materials can be a good solution to avoid some irritations.

These are strange times, the most important thing is to be responsible and be safe. Whichever type of mask you choose, use it.
