What kind of filter should I use? You can find HEPA filters (make sure they are not made of fiberglass) at your local hardware store, a vacuum bag, even a coffee filter can work. This can provide an extra layer of filtration, see this link here for a study. Also this basic study on HEPA filters has a lot of great knowledge on what type of particulates work for a HEPA. The Covid-10 virus is 0.125 microns in size this study done by NASA shows the graph on page 7 and the preceding paragraph do a good job of explaining why HEPA filters are actually most efficient—almost 100 percent at 0.01 micron—at capturing ultrafine particles below the 0.3-micron HEPA test standard.
