Masks with Exhalation Valves or Vents

The purpose of masks is to keep respiratory droplets from reaching others to aid with source control. Masks with one-way valves or vents allow exhaled air to be expelled out through holes in the material.  This can allow exhaled respiratory droplets to reach others and potentially spread the COVID-19 virus.

CDC does not recommend using masks if they have an exhalation valve or vent.

Duke University also did a study that compared a variety of commonly available mask types and observed that some mask types approach the performance of standard surgical masks, while some mask alternatives, such as neck fleece or bandanas, offer very little protection. Bandanas and neck fleeces such as balaclavas didn’t block the droplets much at all.

Watch Speech from Infectious Disease Expert

“A successful shelter in place means you’re going to feel like it was all for nothing — and you’d be right. Because nothing means that nothing happened to your family, and that’s what we’re going for here.” Dr. Emily Landon, University of Chicago Infectious Disease

Children and young adults may not be as likely to get severely ill or die from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as older adults, but experts say they have an important role in stopping its spread and keeping those who are most vulnerable from getting sick.
“We all are in this together, and we all need to practice social distancing and that includes children, young adults and the rest of us,” said Sean T. O'Leary, M.D., M.P.H., FAAP, a member of the AAP Committee on Infectious Diseases, “The more we can slow the spread of this virus, the more lives we will save. It’s clear if this virus spreads quickly, it will likely overwhelm our health care system in terms of availability of hospital beds and the availability of ventilators. So, it’s crucially important to slow the spread of this virus, and that’s everyone’s responsibility.”
