When to use a Face Mask?
We have seen an increase in the use of face masks in public to protect ourselves and others from the spread of COVID-19.
The government for England says:
- People should wear face coverings on public transport and in some shops
- Also in other “enclosed spaces where social distancing is not always possible and they come into contact with others that they do not normally meet”
- “Social distancing” means staying more than two metres away from someone
- Face coverings should be worn and not surgical masks or respirators which should be left for healthcare staff and other workers who need them
It is not necessary to wear medical grade face masks.
Face Masks on Public Transport
As of the 15th June, it is compulsory to wear a face mask covering on public transport. This includes: trains, buses, ferries, planes and taxis with the exception of very young children, the disabled and those with breathing difficulties.
It means that if you refuse to wear a face mask you could be refused access to public transport with the possibility of getting a fine. The face masks do not need to be medical grade standard, they can be home-made.
Using a Face Mask Effectively
Proper use of a face mask will ensure that it is effectively used for its benefits.
Prior to putting a face mask on you must sterilise your hands. If you touch your mask you should change it. Masks should be washed after each use. If the mask is damp on the inside this is an indicator for changing or washing your face mask.
Our Range of Face Masks and Visors
The use of disposable PPE has created a new stream of waste that cannot be recycled and will go to landfill.
We have introduced a new range of reusable face masks and visors in plain, pre-printed with designs or fully custom printed. The face masks are supplied in packs of 10 and they’re fully washable and re-usable for long lasting use.
We have a selection of 100% Cotton Face Masks that hold OEKO TEX 100 certificates class 1 and 2. This means they are free from harmful substances. Masks are glue and chemical free so they can also be used safely by children.
Choose from male or female sizes. The difference is the length of elastic used. Please call us for more information or custom requests.
Branded Face Masks
For a more uniformed look, why not brand your face masks? You can brand the whole face covering area with your logo and custom designs.
As well as offering staff the chance to wear them for added safety in customer facing environments, you can also give them away to customers. Branded face masks with logos will help with brand awareness even when the user has left your store.
