An easy way to make mask-wearing more comfortable

😷 Today’s tip: Use a Band-Aid to fix a mask that keeps sliding off your nose.

On Twitter, surgeon Daniel M. Heiferman recently offered an easy fix: Use a Band-Aid to keep it in place. “Learned it in the OR,” he wrote, above a photo of his own masked and Band-Aid-ed face. (An added bonus: it also helps prevent glasses fog.)

In a time when everything feels difficult and complicated, here, at least, is one thing with a simple solution.
