Many businesses and medical offices are now requiring people to wear face masks when entering their facility to help prevent the spread of infection and the Covid-19 virus. When you also wear a cochlear implant or hearing aids it can be cumbersome or challenging to also wear a mask and not disturb your hearing device.
