Masks 101

Hospitals nationwide have been looking for durable alternatives to disposable protective equipment. The team at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center has had great success. See the chart below for descriptions of the masks you might see your medical professionals wearing to protect themselves and you from COVID-19.

We’ve included descriptions and care instructions for the masks you should be wearing when out in public, as well. Because we all need to protect ourselves and each other from exposure to COVID-19.

Questions about masks? E-mail them to wellness@svhealthcare.org, and we will get them answered in our next “Your COVID Questions Answered” column.

Donna Barron, RN, is the infection preventionist at Southwestern Vermont Health Care in Bennington.
