Face Masks as Part of the New Normal

According to many experts, wearing a facemask will be part of our new normal for quite a while, thanks to Covid-19. This pandemic is not only changing how we behave (social distancing and sheltering in place) but what we wear (sweats all day and now facemasks) and even how we think.
