Adult NON-medical grade cloth face masks


Our adult size NON-medical grade face masks consist of 3 layers- the 2 outer layers are high-quality, tightly woven cotton with an inner layer of flannel (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).

Machine or hand wash and air dry after each use. Not intended to be shared between individuals.

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

Please note: Due to the nature of this product we will not be accepting returns.

Why Face Masks?

On April 07, the Canadian Federal government Chief Medical Officers released a formal statement supporting the use of non-medical masks (or facial coverings) by the public to help slow the spread of the virus by pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic transmission. It is unknown at this time the frequency of this type of transmission but it is occurring between individual in close physical contact.

Centres of Disease Control and Prevention is recommending wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (ie grocery store)

With the emerging information regarding pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic transmission, and the goal to stop the spread of COVID-19 by all means possible, we felt we needed to help out our community by making these available! Wearing a non-medical mask—even if you have no symptoms―is an additional measure you can take to try to protect others around you.
