Our family is using surgical mask when going out for an errand and going to the office (for hubby). We were able to stash a few surgical masks since January when Taal Volcano spewed ashes (caused by phreatomagmatic eruption) across Calabarzon, Metro Manila, some parts of Central Luzon and Ilocos Region.

We also have two N95 masks at home but they are too uncomfortable to use. It makes breathing difficult according to hubby.

I’ve seen more people are using washable cloth mask because it’s accessible and cheaper than surgical mask which you can use only once.

Whatever mask we are wearing, what is important is we (must) exercise social distancing, wash hands frequently. And if you have no business to go out, stay at home to protect yourself and others from catching and spreading COVID19.
