It has also been advised that the covering should be around the nose and mouth. The cloth mask or disposable face masks can be replaced with Shemagh or Niqaab as long as it covers the areas tightly enough like masks. With a continuous shortage of masks globally, these cloth-based home made solutions can help people to feel confident when going out.

Donning the Niqab (for women) or the Shmaagh (for men) is deemed an alternative for the cloth face mask, provided it is made of several layers of fabric. Furthermore, it should fit tightly when worn, specifically at the nose and mouth areas.”
