It is now a common practice to see people out in public wearing every day, non-medical face masks. Over the past few months, health authorities and governments are asking people to wear masks. More and more people are voluntarily wearing face masks. From workers at businesses such as Starbucks to customers at grocery stores, this is currently the new normal.
The idea is that by wearing a consumer face mask it will protect those around you by blocking some of the droplets from your mouth to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Your face mask covering may protect them. Their face mask covering may protect you.
COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. In fact, studies done on infection control show that these droplets usually travel around 6 feet (about two arms lengths).
CDC Recommends Face Masks
We should all be aware now on protocols by the CDC and that includes wearing a face mask. Washable, reusable masks (with or without a filter) worn for breathing protection have been around for years. Anti-pollution masks are popular with asthmatic people or for those who greatly suffer from allergies such as dust or pollen. Medical face masks with carbon activated filters are available for people who are highly susceptible to germs, bacteria, or viruses.
For the foreseeable future, CDC recommends wearing face masks in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations:
Don’t Forget About the Environment
While we’ve established that we ALL need to do our part to continue flattening the curve, the unfortunate side effect of this new global mask use has been an increase in the amount of litter by the use of disposable face masks. In larger cities, streets are littered with masks, and the scary part is not knowing if these thrown away masks are infected with the novel coronavirus.
So, while the new practice of wearing a face mask is important, we also cannot forget about the environment and the huge impact it will have by the increased pollution levels.
THE solution to this issue is reusable face masks.
Will A Reusable Mask Work?
You may think that a reusable mask is not as sterile as a disposable mask, but that is simply not true. Top-quality, made in America everyday face masks are safe and clean. You will need to wash it with warm water and detergent.
You can hand wash or put the mask in the washer, the latter of which the CDC says should suffice to properly clean it. Then, you can let it air dry or put it in the dryer on the hot setting to help kill any potentially remaining particles.
Our Premium Everyday Face Mask has all the right features. We designed it knowing customers will be using it during hot summer months, outdoors and even for sports:
