Face Masks cover the mouth and nose acting as a simple barrier that help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others in your vicinity. Masks tend to reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth.
It is important to wear three layer face masks during the spread of coronavirus. Several studies have found that people with COVID-19 who never develop symptoms (asymptomatic) and those who are not yet showing symptoms (pre-symptomatic) can still spread the virus to other people via droplets generated from their mouth. But wearing a three layer mask can help protect those around you and give you protection from those who may be infected.
It is especially important to wear a face mask when you are indoors with people you do not live with and when you are unable to maintain a social distance of 6 feet since COVID-19 mainly spreads among people in close contact with one another. Wearing face masks outdoors is also essential; it has been made compulsory by law as recent data shows that the virus is air-borne. Face masks are literally the only protective physical barrier we should all wear to stop the spread of the transmission to protect us and others around us.
An abundance of masks are available, from cloth masks to surgical masks. Different types of masks are made with different types of materials and have different benefits:
The middle layer, which is sandwiched between the inner and outer fabric layers, is made of a 20 GSM non-woven industry-standard melt-blown filter. The bacterial filtration efficiency of the middle layer is 98%.
The inner layer is composed of 180 TC fine cotton which is suited to provide comfort against skin. It is also treated with antiviral finish to destroy biological contaminants. ViroGuard by D’Decor antiviral mask is powered by Heiq Viroblock, an innovative Swiss technology.
3 Ply Surgical masks by D’Decor have a bacterial filtration efficiency of 98%. Diligently wearing a surgical mask in public spaces can significantly reduce the spread of respiratory infections.

COVID-19 guidelines stress on social distancing which is why stepping out to buy masks over the counter is not advisable. But buying a face mask online from a credible brand ensures that the entire transaction process, right from ordering masks from the safety of your home to the delivery is hassle-free as well as contactless. This not only protects you but also protects your family since you are not required to step out at all. It is, indeed, safe and even recommended to buy masks online.
If you are buying a cloth mask online, make sure to go for cloth masks with antiviral finish for better safety.
Here are some things you should look for while buying face masks online:
Since you are not physically seeing or wearing the masks before purchasing online, reading reviews about the mask’s comfortability is advisable. Go for ear loops with adjustable straps when buying a cloth mask online since they are known to be quite comfortable. Also, buy face masks with a nose bridge clip so that you can tighten it around your nose comfortably.

Like cloth masks, you can wear reusable masks by D’Decor multiple times if you wash them thoroughly. Viroguard by D’Decor antiviral masks can be used upto 30 washes.
While it is advisable to dispose of a surgical mask after using it only once, every type of mask eventually worsens in condition. It can be through oxidation, cracking, becoming dirty or tearing of the mask or elastic.
It is time to dispose of the mask if it has become loose, shrunk, stretched or distorted due to excessive washing and reuse. Cleaning it can also reduce a mask’s potential for reducing the inhaling of aerosol.
