Mask Debate Continues

Aloha Everyone,

Citizens are protesting about mask mandates. There is conflicting information regarding what kind of masks to wear.  For some of us, including J.J., wearing masks continuously even for a couple of hours causes skin rashes.

It used to be that a blue triple layered surgical mask was considered acceptable in most places. The new guideline by the cruise travel industry is KN-95 or N-95. From my personal experience, N-95 mask is not at all comfortable. The two of us have an adequate number of blue surgical masks which I wear beneath a KN-95.  Waiting for clear guideline before we can purchase additional supplies.

Aloha -- Cathi
