Help stop the spread of germs simply by using face masks
One of the most commonly worn piece of personal protective equipment, or PPE, are face masks. Face masks create a shield of protection for the wearer as it fully covers the nose and mouth. This coverage helps safeguard the individual from airborne germs or prevent their own germs from spreading to another. There are a variety of face mask styles available today including disposable options for single use and reusable face masks that can be washed and worn again. Reusable face masks can be made from two-ply, non-woven polypropylene or cotton and sized to fit children as young as four to adults. The backs either tie or have loops to fit over each ear to keep the mask in place and can even include a hole to add a filter. Face masks are packaged for bulk purchase which makes them an cost-effective solution for infection control measures.
