Protecting Your Lungs While Traveling
People are exposed to many different environments in a short period of time while traveling. Transportation requires people to be in enclosed planes, subways, taxis, or buses. The air quality in a new destination can differ from where a person normally lives. Based on these combined factors, traveling with a mask is a great solution to protect your lungs from harmful airborne particles.
Masks on Planes: Air Travel
When traveling by plane, many people are gathered in a small space for hours at a time. While the air in a plane cabin is circulated through HEPA filters when the ventilation system is engaged, there is still a risk of transmission due to close proximity to others. Many health professionals recommend maintaining a distance of 6 feet from others when trying to reduce the risk of contracting airborne illnesses. While on a plane, this distancing is not possible. On many airlines, face masks are currently recommended during flights in order to stop the spread of illnesses such as covid-19. Wearing a properly fitted, highly filtering efficient mask is essential to protection and preventing the spread of illnesses.
In addition to airline travel, people encounter crowded public settings on many other forms of public transportation like buses and trains. Dozens of commuters and travelers packed into a tight space makes it difficult for social distancing and the circulation of air.
However, many forms of public transportation continue to recommend mask use to help protect riders. Wearing a mask is a simple precaution to protect your health and and the health of those around you.
When visiting a new city or country the air you breathe could be very different than at home. New allergens are in the air, AQIs are different, and new airborne illnesses could be circulating. Whether you are traveling for a few days for work or several weeks for a vacation, protecting your lungs from the air in both outdoor and indoor settings is important for protecting your health.
Air quality varies depending on many factors such as geographic location, pollution, and manufacturing levels. While traveling, it is important to be aware of how different the air quality is compared to where you normally live. Inhaling particles in an area with poor air quality can lead to both long-term and short-term effects like shortness of breath, coughing, asthma flare-ups, and more. Wearing a mask in these areas protects your lungs from inhaling these particles.
It is important to take care of your health and wellness while traveling because you are likely in a new place away from home. Contracting an illness while traveling can thwart your plans, and gaining access to medicines or medical care can prove difficult in new places. To ensure you are at your best physically while traveling, protect your lungs with a highly effective Vogmask.
Spreading Germs While Traveling
In certain parts of the world, it is common practice to wear “courtesy” masks in public places in order to reduce germ transmission. When traveling, it is important to both protect yourself and others from germ transmission and exhaled particles. Vogmasks provide middle layers of effective filter media for helping to reduce both inhaled and exhaled particles, protecting your lungs and those around you.
