Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably heard about the latest safety measures recommended by the Canadian government regarding the Covid-19 pandemic. One of them is the wearing of a mask when out in public. Although the most effective masks remain the N95 medical-grade ones, fashion face masks are becoming increasingly popular. They are a great and accessible way to stay safe in public, while also protecting others around you.
At Margaret M, we believe that the safety of our customers always come first! This is why we have created these new fun and fashionable printed masks, that allow you to stay protected from the Coronavirus, without having to compromise on your style. With our 10 different designs, you are sure to find something that you will like and will fit with your printed fabrics!
What makes our printed masks different?
Our non-medical masks allow for easy breathing with their comfortable fabric made out of a 100% cotton interior and a 75% rayon, 21% nylon and 4% spandex exterior.
Constantly having to readjust your mask is not only very distracting and annoying, but it also defeats the purpose of wearing one. You constantly end up with your hands in your face, increasing your chances of being contaminated. Our masks are shaped to eye and nose contour and have adjustable straps, to make sure you are comfortable and can continue with your day, almost without noticing you are wearing one.
Is it enough to completely protect me from the virus?
Although our printed masks are a great preventive measure and have been recommended by Health Canada, they are not FDA approved and cannot protect you as well as medical-grade masks from Covid-19. The fabric used is different, and they do not form a complete seal around your nose and mouth. Therefore, there is still a possibility that virus-sized particles reach you.
However, combining the wearing of our masks with social distancing and frequent hand washing reduces significantly your risks of getting infected. This is also a great way of showing people around you that you care about their safety.
What else can I do to make sure I’m well protected?
According to the Canadian government, here are the things you can do to reduce your chances of getting infected by the Coronavirus, or unwillingly infect others :
- Stay home unless it is essential
- Do not gather in groups
- Limit contact with people at higher risk, like elderly people
- If you leave your house, try to stay at a distance of 2 meters from other people
- Wash your hands often and with soap for at least 20 seconds
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you can’t wash your hands
- Avoid touching your face with your hands
- Wear a face mask in public
