WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - When it comes to wearing a mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses, is there a way to be more comfortable without sacrificing safety? Face mask shells are designed to make masks fit more comfortably without decreasing the masks’ effectiveness.

A face mask shell is a brace worn behind the mask. It creates a pocket to make breathing easier to help keep the mask dry. Does it work as advertised, enhancing comfort without sacrificing safety?

To put it to the test, Eyewitness News enlisted the help of Tim Wallace with Germadic Pest Control, a man who wears a mask every day for his job.
