It’s officially been one year since the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released guidance regarding two of the United States’ primary Covid-19 mitigation measures: face masks and vaccinations. After almost 12 months of wearing face masks, scientists and researchers have learned substantially more about what qualities to look for in a mask that make it most efficacious, as well as what to avoid — we even have a manufacturing standard by which face mask brands can certify theirs for efficacy. Masks aside, as over 2 million people are getting vaccinated each day in the U.S., the CDC published recommendations about the dos and don’ts of socializing for fully vaccinated people.

Recent guidance about masks and vaccinations surfaced as states like Texas, Mississippi, Iowa and Montana have lifted their mask mandates. Public spaces such as restaurants, gyms and schools are also reopening across the country, some with limited capacities and others allowing free, pre-pandemic levels. Yet, medical experts urge people to practice safety measures to arm themselves against the coronavirus, including double masking and investing in respirators like KN95s, as well as maintaining physical distance, washing hands frequently and regularly applying hand sanitizer.

While face mask mandates vary by state, they are now required on planes, buses, trains and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within or out of the U.S., as well as in transportation hubs like airports, bus stations and train stations. Overall, the CDC recommends people wear masks in public settings, at events and gatherings and anywhere they will be around other people.

In February, ASTM International, a voluntary standard-setting organization, released a Standard Specification for Barrier Face Coverings, which helps establish specific requirements for mask design and performance. Brands and manufacturers can take their face masks to a lab to be tested against ASTM’s standard. If a mask passes the tests, it can be labeled with the ASTM standard, which signals to shoppers that it meets high-levels of efficacy.

Face masks from brand HALOLIFE are some of the only ones on the market that currently meet the ASTM standard. To help you evaluate masks while shopping, the CDC has created a list of face mask features to look for, suggesting masks.
