    • I wore one just this evening for this very reason – coronavirus protection while grocery shopping. Had to adjust it a couple times, which partially defeated the purpose of wearing it. I was careful not to touch my eyes, though.

  1. My bandanas are 23″ square, but the ends only overlap about three or four inches. I can’t double tie it, and it needs tightening or retying every 2-3 minutes. Do you have any suggestions on how I can my bandana over my nose and mouth?

  2. Use the 2 rubber bands folded from square side and tucked in method. YouTube and others have lots of videos on that.
