How to trim your beard and be safe from ‘Coronavirus’

The Centre for Disease Control, CDC, in the United States has listed some types of facial hair that can do and to be safe from Coronavirus disease.

The CDC warned that facial hair can interfere with face masks and respirators, which are being used around the world in an effort to combat the global spread of coronavirus, a.k.a 2019-nCoV.

The CDC has come up with an info-graphic, which displays assorted styles of beards, and showing the ones that are compatible with masks and respirators.

Health officials said some types of facial hair can keep the exhalation valve from working properly, CNN News reports.

Styles such as side whiskers, handlebar mustaches, and several others are okay, but styles such as mutton chops and full beards are not recommended.

Things like goatees and villain mustache are okay, with caution.

The main idea is that the hair should not cross the respirator sealing surface.
