what does the science say?
Whilst it’s not currently a legal requirement to wear a face mask in public in Australia, it could help slow the spread. So that’s something we want to be a part of. The WHO is currently looking into the evidence around face masks. For the first time, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that even seemingly healthy people wear masks over their mouths and noses when venturing out of their homes into places where it is difficult to social distance. Check out the Czech Republic’s experience of this here.
why wear a mask?
Let’s be upfront, these aren’t medical grade face masks. We want to leave those precious supplies to our awesome health workers who require them the most. We developed these masks for the everyday Aussie, to offer that bit of extra protection when heading out – whether that’s to a medical appointment, to work or education, getting supplies or caring for a loved one.
