A study from the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that wearing two face masks can block more than 90 percent of viral particles.

“Masks are not 100-percent effective, so you’re going to stop some droplets but not others. If we’re trying to increase the number of droplets we block because the virus variants are more transmissible, that means we need better mask materials and more layers.”

Andrea Love, PhD, a regional manager for Nexcelom Bioscience, told "NBC News."

Wearing a cotton mask over a surgical mask (or double masking) has been proven to reduce a person's exposure to the Coronavirus significantly. With new variants emerging, we all may want to heed the CDC's advice to ensure extra protection. Here are some of the masks you can use to double mask:
