What is a face mask?
A face mask, also known as a cloth face covering, is a multi-layer mask that helps slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus by reducing transmission from person to person.
The CDC recommends wearing face masks in public settings or social areas, such as grocery stores and pharmacies, where it is difficult to maintain a 6-foot distance at all times.
IMPORTANT: Using a face mask does not replace the importance of social distancing. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks nor N-95 respirators.
Our face masks contain 3 layers: 2 layers of 100% cotton and 1 layer of interfacing (melt-blown non-woven fabric) that acts like a filter.
