Andrew Noymer, associate professor of [public health], at the University of California, Irvine, said, “I think omicron is so contagious and there are too many opportunities for exposure at the airport, including when the TSA agent requests that you remove your mask [to confirm your identity].” … Noymer says you may need to purchase multiple mask options from different brands to find one that seals your nose and mouth the best.
