Neck Gaiter Versus Mask
Outdoor sports enthusiasts and athletes
may prefer to use neck gaiters over masks because they serve the dual
purpose of protecting from the elements and stopping the spread of the
virus causing COVID-19. These athletes may also like that a neck gaiter
can be worn in other ways (e.g. as a beanie or bandana) at, say, the race track where people are far apart.
Another advantage over masks are that neck gaiters don’t need to be constantly taken off and put back on — when the neck gaiter isn’t needed, it can be simply pulled down to sit around the neck. Also, when worn correctly, neck gaiters cover the sides of the face fully, which could be more protective than some masks that are loose around the sides.
And since it is being required across states & businesses... why not represent for some head-nods while out & about.
