The best way to guard against COVID is to practice social distancing while wearing a mask. The problem is most masks are “one size fits all”; meaning they don’t fit well, creating gaps and often feeling uncomfortable. Electronics giant LG has a clever solution in the form of their LG PuriCare Mask,utilizing electric fans and a HEPA filtration system. While LG does not make any COVID protection claims, HEPA filters are engineered to remove 99.97% of airborne particles that are 0.3 microns in size or larger. Coronavirus particles are typically 0.06 to 0.14 microns in size. Unlike disposable masks, the PuriCare is reusable; the storage case incorporates UV lights to disinfect it between uses while recharging the fan batteries. Best of all, it’s ergonomically designed to fit snugly yet comfortably while the dual sensor fans adjust to the wearer’s breathing rate to ensure easy breathing. Battery life is up to 8 hours on the slow setting or 2 on the high setting; LG.com.
