Users Flag! Originally from canada. Users Flag! Expat in philippines.

You need a N95 mask. This will not stop the virus but it wil filter out water borne particles that cary the virus.

As far as I know the virus is not itself airborne, that is it needs something toi ride on to transmit through the air like a water particle from someone sneezing or coughing.

The cheap 10p disposable surgical mask will not filter that out, except when you sneeze it will block a lot of what you produce.'

I ordered a reusable face mask from Amazon and am having it shipped over, I got 2 sets of o100 cart rages and these should each last about a month if it is not too dusty. I am hoping that I never really need it but this is out of an abundance of caution on my part.

And if I don't need it, I'll just save it in case Taal starts acting up again.
