The UK government have suggested that face coverings such as these masks can help reduce the spread of Corona virus.
The following extract has been taken straight from the government website.
"You must wear a face covering at all times on public transport or when attending a hospital as a visitor or outpatient. Hospitals will be able to provide a face covering in emergencies. If you can, you should also wear a face covering in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet. This is most relevant for short periods indoors in crowded areas. You should be prepared to remove your face covering if asked to do so by police officers and staff for the purposes of identification.
Evidence suggests that wearing a face covering does not protect you. However, if you are infected but have not yet developed symptoms, it may provide some protection for others you come into close contact with.
Face coverings do not replace social distancing. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, and/or high temperature, and/or loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste - anosmia), you and your household must isolate at home: wearing a face covering does not change this. You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19.
A face covering is not the same as the surgical masks or respirators used by healthcare and other workers as part of personal protective equipment. These should continue to be reserved for those who need them to protect against risks in their workplace, such as health and care workers, and those in industrial settings, like those exposed to dust hazards.
Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly.
It is important to use face coverings properly and wash your hands before putting them on and taking them off."
Please consider the needs of the NHS and the environment when buying PPE for personal use.
What they are made from?
Cotton, bamboo and elastic.
When the mask reaches it's end of life, remove the elastic and repurpose then cut the mask into strips to home compost.
How to care for them
Masks should be washed after every use. These masks can be laundered but are not suitable for tumble drying.
Masks must not be worn during sleep due to risk of suffocation. These masks are adult size but if children wear them, they must be supervised at all times. Wear only in line with govt advice.
