This next reporter is wearing a mask with an exhalation valve.

The valve is the round white thing on the side of the mask. They can also be located at the center of the mask and even two, one on either side of the mask. The color and shape will vary

Such a valve allows everything that is exhaled to go, unfiltered, into the environment.

This type of mask may protect the wearer but it DOES NOTHING to protect those around the wearer.

Exhalation valves must be fully blocked, inside and outside, with strong, well adhered tape.

If looking for a mask, don't get one with an exhalation valve.

The CDC says to not use a mask with an exhalation valve and some cities and states are banning them. close
