The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is offering a free webinar on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 entitled “Effectiveness of Medical and Cloth Masks for COVID-19 Protection”.
Due to little or no public information on the performance and efficacy of different types of masks or modifications on existing face coverings, the webinar will highligh three research projects EPA did in collaboration with the University of North Carolina.
The webinar is free and open to the public, although registration is required. For a more detailed description of the event and to register, please click here.
