And are there any risks that wearing masks can pose themselves?To answer your questions, MTV News called Dr. Darien Sutton-Ramsey, an emergency physician in New York, to help break down everything you need to know about wearing your own mask, why it works, and how to keep it as clean and useful as possible. Here’s everything you need to know:MTV News: What function do masks provide generally, whether they're medical-grade or cloth and paper masks?Dr. Darien Sutton-Ramsey: There are two main types of masks that people know about. The main goal is that number one, you want to secure it around your face, and number two, you want to make sure you can still breathe, obviously, while you're wearing it.MTV News: Whenever I go outside, I often see people wearing their masks on their chin. What can people be doing better about mask hygiene?Dr. Sutton-Ramsey: I spend so much time in the hospital where I'm operating around people who understand how to wear a mask. Don't wear it on your face or other parts of your body.MTV News: People are trying to run outside more, and running with a mask is not easy. What should people know about the risks of wearing or not wearing a mask while they're working out?Sutton-Ramsey: When you're running around, you're breathing at a faster rate, and you're increasing your chance of exposing other people. But make sure that you store it in an appropriate place and that you put it back on appropriately when you're done running.MTV News: A lot of Black people especially are worried that wearing a mask will put them in a different kind of danger, and that people who racially profile them might target them for harassment. There will never be a time where we can just eliminate masks, because of the risk that a new case of COVID-19 can present itself in the ER even if we have a normal life outside, you know?All I can do is empathize, because it's also hard to navigate this world where some of us are naturally emotional, touchy people like I am.
