Cotton Cloth Reusable Face Mask
Steph has been busy sewing up some face masks for anyone wants to wear a face mask to help minimise the spread of COVID-19. Please note these masks are not surgical grade, they are a covering for your face that will create a barrier and if worn correctly will minimise respiratory droplets, there is a sleeve for you to add a filter yourself.
The 100% cotton face masks are elasticated to fit over your ears, have a pocket to put in a filter, machine washable and should fit most adults.
We are now selling the disposable filters to fit the reusable masks, just insert the filter into the pocket and make sure to remove before you wash the mask. Filters are suitable for use for approximately 60 hours each.
Should I wear a mask?
The World Health Organisation recommends that a mask be worn in the following scenarios:
- hospitals and other healthcare settings
- grocery stores
WHO recommend that the general public wear non medical masks when physical distancing is not possible. This includes on public transport, in shops, and in some working conditions, such as those of social workers and cashiers.
They also recommend that people aged 60 and over and people with existing medical conditions wear medical masks when physical distancing is not possible.
Medical masks are a critical source for healthcare workers and others who need them the most. When medical masks are in short supply, the WHO say that they should be reserved for healthcare workers and at-risk individuals.
