A homemade mask is not considered true PPE, and will not be quite as effective as using a medical grade, disposable mask. wearing a mask should NOT supersede social distancing.

 

We are giving away 1 mask to someone in the front lines for every mask purchased.

- Our masks feature a pleated double layer construction and easy to fit elastic-over-ear design

- One layer of cotton inside and one layer with a bit more color/design on the outside. The cotton for comfort and colorful vibe because it’s easier to identify your mask. And we can all use a bit of brightening up these days

- Inside fabric (fabric facing your skin) colors/designs are limited and may vary from pictures

- The masks have a small hole in the bottom or top so a filter can be added for extra protection

- Do not use a mask on a child younger than 2 years of age

We have designed and made masks to fulfill the public need and try to ensure we can 

  1. Pay Rent 
  2. Pay Staff Salaries
  3. Support a network of independent seamstresses with NWA MASK MAKERS who are making masks for those on the front lines helping with the COVID-19 crisis.

 

In these times first prize is not leaving the house. 

These masks are intended to be a barrier for when you absolutely have to leave the house for supplies etc. 

We encourage social distancing when wearing in public and always wash hands before and after removing.

 

Usage and Good Hygiene guidelines:

Firstly, a mask is not a solve-all solution in the fight of Covid-19 and should never be used in place of basic good hygiene considerations. The most important thing every resident should do is:

  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water
  • Do not touch your face with unwashed hands
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or the corner of your arm, and safely throw away the tissue
  • Keep a distance of 1,5m from others
  • If you are ill, stay at home, or arrange for clinical assessment

This should be adhered to at all times, regardless of whether you have a mask or not.

Wearing a mask does not make you invulnerable and should never be a reason not to follow these basic golden rules.

 

How to properly use a cloth mask:

The usage of any type of mask should be accompanied by strictly adhering to safe use guidelines.

It is very important to use a cloth mask properly. If you do not, it might result in them putting yourself at risk of spreading Covid-19. The simple guidelines to use are:

  1. Only use a mask that has been cleaned & ironed
  2. Place the mask with the correct side facing your nose and mouth and covering both well
  3. Tie the strings behind your head, or if you are using elastic bands, make sure these are tight
  4. Make sure it fits well. Move it around to get the best fit. Never touch the front cloth part.
  5. Once you have put on the mask, DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE again until you take it off
  6. When you take it off, undo the ties, and carefully fold the mask inside out, hold it by the strings/elastic and place the mask in a container preserved for washing the cloth mask.
  7. Wash hands thoroughly and dry before doing anything else

 

 

Maintaining the mask:

It is recommended to have two cloth masks per person so you will be able to wash one and have a clean one ready for use.

  • Wash the mask daily in soap and hot water (tolerated during hand wash).
  • Rinse thoroughly and dry
  • IRON THE MASK- this is the best means of disinfection!
