What is all this talk about Double Masking?

Recently there is a debate about whether we should double mask. We found a few articles on the topic that may be helpful.

Should you double up on your face masks? (from CTV)

Time to double or upgrade masks as coronavirus variants emerge (from Washington Post)

So - Should we Double Mask?

Whether you double masks may depend on your own situation or the environment you are visiting.

Our OPINION is that you need options based on the particular occasion. Perhaps reusable fabric masks when you take a walk outside alone, add a filter if you go to a store or indoor public space, and use/add medical masks when you visit your pharmacy or therapist. Step up if you or someone in your family are high risk, or step up just to be safe!

Note: These are not medical advice our goal is just to help you be informed so you can protect yourself and others.

 

How are we doing our part?

We noticed a pickup in orders on replaceable filters, so either you are already adding protection or ordering filters to go with your holiday gift masks.

We made a restock and they are now available again. These replaceable filters fit most (all of our) reusable fabric masks with the pockets for them.

Available in 1/5/10/25/50 packs and FREE Shipping within Canada.

It never hurts to have a few available when you need them and they are less wasteful than the one-use medical masks.

Take Care and be Safe everyone!
