Argument for approving the paper ones is that they are cheap, fast, and accurate enough to help reduce the spread. The way testing is handled now, individuals must demonstrate symptoms first because testing capacity is limited. Not only is it limited, the results take so long that the positive person's peak infection rate may have already passed making it no benefit in slowing the spread of the virus.
Wearing a face mask to catch droplets is common sense to prevent transmission.

Europe's Top Health Officials Say Masks Aren't Helpful in Beating COVID-19

Absent of vaccines, face masks like N95 or KN95, social distancing of at least 6 ft. away from others, avoid large social gatherings, wear some types of eye protection like safety or sunglasses and use hand sanitizers and wash hands often with soaps are our best option right now. N95 or KN95 offers better protection than surgery or fabric face masks. 3M N95 is still in short supply or pretty expensive right now so the next alternative is KN95, made in China but these genuine KN95 offers better protection than regular surgical or fabric masks. I've been using them for over a month now, and they're comfortable to wear. 10 KN95 for only $22.95. I got them from here: bonafidemasks.com/Powecom-kn-95/
