SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The CDC says there are two ways to significantly reduce your risk of getting COVID-19, and both involve wearing a mask.

Studies show wearing two masks and making sure your mask fits properly reduce exposure.

One study found wearing two masks blocked 92.5% of cough particles, as opposed to one mask that blocked less than 50%.

Another experiment looked at the spread of COVID during breathing, when two people were double-masked or wearing snug-fitting masks.

It found their exposure was reduced up to 96%.
