Surgical face masks are another effective option in areas where they’re readily available. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, health agencies in the United States have recommended face mask usage to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.

A new study, published today in the scientific journal Physics of Fluids from AIP Publishing, sheds new light on how the materials and construction of a face mask can impact its effectiveness.
