Getting a thin mask

It’s best to either have a multi-layer mask, or a tight-weave mask. One expert recommends holding your mask up to the light. If you can see the individual fibers, it isn’t tight enough. A cotton tight weave mask is a good bet because cotton fibers are three-dimensional, meaning they create a bit more structure and can better block out the virus than synthetic fibers.
