Fourth Webinar in the AATCC PPE Series:
Research Discussion and Live Q&A: Low-cost Measurement of Facemask Efficacy for Filtering Expelled Droplets During Speech
September 24, 2020; 11:00AM (EDT)
Presented by Dr. David Grass, Research Associate, Warren Group, Dept of Chemistry, Duke University
Mandates for mask use in public during the recent COVID-19 pandemic, worsened by global shortage of commercial supplies, have led to widespread use of homemade masks and mask alternatives. It is assumed that wearing such masks reduces the likelihood for an infected person to spread the disease, but many of these mask designs have not been tested in practice. We have demonstrated a simple optical measurement method to evaluate the efficacy of masks to reduce the transmission of respiratory droplets during regular speech. In proof-of-principle studies, we compared a variety of commonly available mask types and observed that some mask types approach the performance of standard surgical masks, while some mask alternatives, such as neck fleece or bandanas, offer very little protection. Our measurement setup is inexpensive and can be built and operated by non-experts, allowing for rapid evaluation of mask performance during speech, sneezing, or coughing.
