Penn Elcom Washable Cloth Face Mask With Filter Pouch (Blue) MAHSJLB
Developed for comfortable daily use, these cloth face masks support recommended guidelines for non-medical professional wear during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing medical grade masks to reach the health industry.
A newly-conducted study by Cambridge University showed that cloth masks do significantly reduce the risk of infection associated with influenza-like illness. By lowering the amount of infected droplets both expelled and inhaled, cloth masks are effective at combating the spread of COVID-19.
Recently on the BBC World at One radio show, Professor of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford Trisha Greenhalgh proposed that even simple cloth masks, if worn by everyone at all times, will certainly help slow the spread of flu or viruses.
Ideal to wear for long durations because they’re designed to fit snugly around the ear with a shape that rests easily on the face. A handy filter pouch is built in to allow for the insertion of most common filters, giving even more protection. A folded sheet of tissue is recommended as a basic filter, improving the efficacy of the masks a great deal.
Made in the UK from 100% cotton, they’re soft, breathable, lightweight and also reuseable. Each mask can be machine washed and dried safely without loss of shape or performance, the highest temperature setting is advised.
