How to Wear Your LOOP Face Mask

 Over the past eight months we ALL have been navigating the new normal of living with COIVD-19 in our communities. In April, LOOP decided that we wanted to help play a role in our communities and create community face mask for our customers.

Our adult size NON-medical grade face masks consist of 3 layers- the 2 outer layers of high-quality, tightly woven cotton with an inner layer of flannel (100% cotton). ** Masks labeled twill are  3 layer mask consists of one outer layer of 100% viscose twill, a middle layer of flannel (100% cotton) and one inside layer of high-quality, tightly woven cotton (100% cotton).** They are intended to fit snug over the nose and mouth, and be used for short periods of time when physical distancing is not possible in public settings (e.g., grocery shopping, in close settings such as public transit).

Wearing a non-medical mask when in public or other settings is not a replacement for following proven measures such as hand washing and physical distancing. A face mask should always be combined with other measures such as respiratory etiquette (coughing into your elbow) and hand hygiene
