Our affordable fabric face masks are recommended for use by the general public in order to significantly reduce your risk of spreading viruses. These are general-use fabric face masks and not intended for medical use. They are not proven to eliminate the transmission of viruses, but according to The World Health Organization do assist in preventing transmission. They are designed to cover your face from nose-to-chin and fasten by means of elasticated ear loops for maximum comfort. When handling the mask, only touch the ear loops and avoid touching the fabric and/or filter.
