– Do you use the same mask all day?

– Do you frequently pull down your mask away from your nose so you can breathe easier?

– Do you leave your mask on while you leave the operatory to quickly grab something or to briefly check another patient?

– If using aerosol-producing equipment, do you use your mask for more than 20 minutes?

– During a lengthy procedure, do you use the same mask for the entire time?
