Firstly, we hope everyone is staying healthy, safe and practicing proper social distancing. To help, we’re offering Tultex face masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Starting in April 2020, the US Government suggested everyone wear face masks while outside. Further, masks are an excellent idea when in areas of significant community-based transmission. This safety measure may stay in place for a while until a proper vaccine can be produced. Meanwhile, these masks are a cost-effective way to keep people around you safe.
Cloth Face Cover Recommendations
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a lot of great information posted on their website. Consequently, they have great information about cloth face coverings.
- According to the CDC, COVID-19 spreads mainly from person-to-person.
- In other words, between people who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).
- The virus spreads through respiratory droplets produced when someone coughs, sneezes or talks.
- These droplets can then be inhaled (through the mouth or nose) by someone and become infected.
- As a result, people may become infected without even realizing it.
Tultex Face Masks Examined
To clarify, these masks are not medical grade. Further, they do NOT replace the N95 mask. That is to say they should not be used in any surgical setting. Likewise, do not use them where one may experience exposure to liquid, bodily or hazardous fluids.
A positive feature is they are 100% U.S. cotton and washable, breathable and reusable. Depending on activities you do, you may be wearing your facial covering for an extended period of time. Therefore, you’ll want to ensure it’s soft, comfortable and won’t do damage to your skin. Pictures from first responders show them with facial bruises from masks. This is a result from wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for long hours. As a reminder, these are not medical grade masks and are for civilian use only.
The mask features 2-ply cotton construction with a top and bottom binding. They also feature cover stitch closure and 3 pleat expansion. Likewise, they can tie behind the head or create a loop around the ears. In addition, they will fit different ages and face structures.
