The more layers of fabric that the face covering has, the higher the level of filtration. The WHO recommends that ideally, they should have at least three layers and should be made from tightly woven or unwoven fabrics. If you can, avoid using elastic materials such as exercise clothes as stretching will create larger holes in the fabric and reduce its ability to filter the air.
