The new normal includes an invasive piece of cloth or something that shields your face. Which is essential. To keep yourself safe and others safe. I do find them to be too hot, and uncomfortable at times. So the solution to that for me is to get a pretty one, that you can pop filters into and wash them instead of getting disposable ones. Plus if it is pretty you at least do not mind using it and taking it about with you, plus you will want to put it in your bag!
