Public Grade Face Masks are designed to slow the spread of infection by preventing people from touching their noses and mouths, and by helping contain coughs and sneezes. If the general public uses this type of mask instead of medical-grade masks, it will free up medical-grade masks for professionals who need them.
- Loops around the ears
- The inside is made with wicking material and spandex on the outside.
- Reusable, machine washable on gentle cycle and hang dry.
- Mask size 7 x 4 1/4”. For sizing, we have two sizes: Small and Large. Size depends on face structure. For a wider face or jawline, the Large will work best. The gals on our team tend to wear a Small, and the men typically wear Large.
- Due to the nature of this product, all orders are final and non-refundable.
From Dr. Luke Padwick, founder of Austin Emergency Centers:
“Non-medical grade masks don’t filter viruses but are still useful for the public as barriers. Number one, all of us touch our face about 100 times a day without realizing it. When you’re wearing a mask, when you touch a handle or doorknob then rub your eyes, nose or mouth, the mask will prevent you from putting the virus in you. The non-medical grade masks also create a barrier that reduces the likelihood of one person spreading pathogens to another through sneezing, breathing or coughing. It contributes to public safety.
