Are cloth masks much better than paper?

Paper is more comfortable for me and even my Dr only wore paper.

I don't need to wear them long, Just once or twice a week for groceries.

    Paper masks are okay, but I feel like I'm not protected enough when I wear them. I would rather wear a cloth mask with a filter. Even if you're wearing either type of mask, you should still be doing your best to physically distance your self from people you don't live with.

    For your purposes a paper disposable one is fine.

    Cloth is better for long term use.

    Neither is some 100% guarantee of safety.

    I prefer my cloth mask with filters and a vent.

    It breathes better than surgical masks.
