    How To Stay Sufficiently Hydrated While Wearing Masks

    What am I talking about?  How are we all staying sufficiently hydrated while wearing masks all day?  The struggle is real.  Facemasks should be doffed and donned (that’s “removed” and “put on,” respectively) with clean, just-washed hands.  Frequently removing and replacing facemasks to sip your favorite venti iced beverages can increase chances of spreading illness-causing pathogens.  I am very curious to hear how you all are managing to consume your recommended daily fluids, but here are three tactics that I have been utilizing these past few weeks.

    So what has helped you maintain optimal hydration levels if you are wearing a face mask for part of the day? Leave a comment and let me know!
