The health and safety of our communities is paramount to overcoming the Covid-19 pandemic and maintaining a healthy society. It’s up to us to do our part to #flattenthecurve by practicing social distancing and being proactive by using face masks even when you don’t feel sick. Here are 5 reasons why using face masks may help protect you, your family, and everyone else around you.
During this time of uncertainty, all should wear a face mask to guard the face, nose, and mouth against respiratory droplets and germs. Although public outings are banned or strongly discouraged, it’s critical to wear a face mask during essential trips to the grocery store or the doctor’s office to protect yourself and your surroundings. Marena’s Reusable Antibacterial Face Mask is designed to help with this. Infused with active silver antibacterial protection, our mask is soft against the skin, breathable, and comfortable. It can also be washed at high temperatures or steam cleaned and ironed for hygiene.
Depending on where you live, you may be required or advised to wear a face mask in public. Wearing a face mask not only helps to protect you, it helps protect the people around you. Marena’s face mask can help limit the unintentional spread of larger respiratory droplets. In addition, it’s important to wash your hands often and remain at least 6 feet apart from others in public and in closed spaces.
Running parallel to the current pandemic is, you guessed it, allergy season. For those suffering with seasonal allergies, wearing a face mask may provide a layer of prevention and relief. Covering your nose and mouth during times outdoors may help limit your exposure to seasonal allergens and, hopefully, result in fewer pollen-initiated symptoms. Those of us with allergies have been reported to be more susceptible to the virus, so prevention of exposure to allergens is especially important during the pandemic.
The CDC recommends the use of cloth face coverings in public or while around a group of people when you cannot remain a minimum of 6 feet apart. Face mask requirements include: washability, a snug yet comfortable fit, secured with ties or ear loops, airborne droplet filtration, and comfortable breathing. Marena’s Reusable Antibacterial Face Mask meets these requirements, while offering additional benefits.
Globally, we’re trying to get through this the best way we know how. Protect yourself and others by wearing a face mask. Many people carrying the virus are reported to have the potential to be asymptomatic, so practicing caution is critical to the well being of our communities. Everybody is vulnerable to this invisible enemy. But the elderly and those living with compromised immune systems especially deserve all our precaution possible. Together, we’ll get through this.
