How men wear beards, mustaches, or sideburns does influence how they avoid the spread of viral illnesses, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

According to an infographic shared on the institution's website, facial hair can pose a problem if it covers the person's face enough to press against the seal of the respirator valve, as this can break it.

The CDC image showing 36 different ways to wear facial hair indicates that regardless of the type of beard or mustache style used, it should not hinder the sealing of the respirator as this would compromise its protective ability.

The institution indicates that the best way to prevent infection is to shave completely or use short mustaches, such as fox style, and avoid long, closed beards such as Garibaldi.

In any case, the CDC clarified that the masks do not serve to prevent healthy people from becoming infected, but rather that their usefulness is in cases of people who are already infected to prevent them from passing the disease on to others.

This clarification has not prevented the masks from being used as a prevention method, which has depleted stocks in the countries where the virus has spread.

Other CDC recommendations include avoiding contact with sick people, avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, maintaining hygiene, and disinfecting objects and surfaces you touch, covering your mouth when coughing, and washing your hands. Often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

The infographic with the barns was released for the first time to alert about avoiding the spread of the virus in general in November 2017 by the experts Jaclyn Krah Cichowicz, Ron Shaffer and Markee Shamblin. His goal was to answer the beard or non-beard question for the No-shave November and Movember campaign that raises funds for causes like the fight against cancer.

The World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that COVID-19 today reaches more than 40 countries, affecting more than 80,000 people, most of them in China, where more than 2,700 deaths have been recorded.
