We hope this post helps you in deciding which masks to get for returning back to school. Along with this, a few tips:

- Practice handwashing prior to putting on and taking off masks.
- Practice your kids putting on and taking off masks by themselves. They should be able to do so with minimum contact between hands and face.
- Add mask lanyards for more secure fit and to avoid dropping masks to the ground. You’ve already bought well made, expensive masks, ensure they last!
- For reusable masks, ensure to wash according to directions and dry well before reuse.
- You might want to consider adding mask filters for added protection.
- To increase breathing room, check out these 3D mask brackets that could be inserted inside your masks. They function as an inner support frame for more comfortable breathing.

Happy going back to school and most importantly, stay safe!
