Random thought...prevaricating... Why are they called "face" masks, specifically? Are there other types of masks?

Yes. Don’t you have one of these? I thought everyone did

Why do people refer to a ‘global’ pandemic? Surely that’s tautological.

The other main type of mask I've been involved in this pandemic has been CPAP ones for treating Covid. There, you can have "nasal", "face", and "full face" masks (plus hoods). Though a "full face" cloth mask would make it difficult to see...

I want to go back in time to when I only used face masks for a pamper night in!

Well there’s the ones that cover your eyes. But that’s also your face 🤔
