Tips for Safely Wearing a Face Mask as Temperatures Rise Trinity Health Experts Advise Wearing Masks, Even in Warmer Temperatures

LIVONIA, Mich., July 8, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

"Cloth face masks are important to prevent people who may not yet have symptoms of COVID-19 from passing the virus to other people," said Tammy Lundstrom, M.D., JD, chief medical officer, Trinity Health.

Warmer weather poses extra challenges to wearing masks.

"Using common sense is the best approach to staying protected against COVID-19 while avoiding overheating," said Russ Olmsted, director, infection prevention management, Trinity Health.

Tips for Wearing A Mask During Warm Weather

Lundstrom said the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain: such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations. The exceptions are people under age two years old, those who have trouble breathing or who are unable to remove the mask without assistance.
