Covid Face Masks

Please do your part and wear a face mask.....We will offer different masks that will come in different colors, patterns and shapes. The Face Masks sell out pretty quickly..... but we will keep making more.
During the pandemic we all need to do our share to help stop the spread of COVID-19   ... Wearing a face mask is one of the very important things we need to do as well as washing our hands and social distancing ... Health experts say the evidence is clear that face masks can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and that the more people wearing face masks, the better....  SOURCE CDC 
The CDC website says:

What you need to know

  • •People age 2 and older should wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household.?
  • •Masks offer some protection to you and are also meant to protect those around you, in case you are unknowingly infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • •A mask is NOT a substitute for social distancing. Masks should still be worn in addition to staying at least 6 feet apart.
  • •Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol after touching or removing your mask.
  • •Masks may not be necessary when you are outside by yourself away from others, or with other people who live in your household. However, some localities may have mask mandates while out in public and these mandates should always be followed.
  • •CDC is still studying the effectiveness of different types of masks and will update our recommendations as new scientific evidence becomes available.
  • "COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets. Respiratory droplets travel into the air when you cough, sneeze, talk, shout, or sing. These droplets can then land in the mouths or noses of people who are near you or they may breathe these droplets in.

    Masks are a simple barrier to help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others. Studies show that masks reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth.

    You should wear a mask, even if you do not feel sick. This is because several studies have found that people with COVID-19 who never develop symptoms (asymptomatic) and those who are not yet showing symptoms (pre-symptomatic) can still spread the virus to other people. The main function of wearing a mask is to protect those around you, in case you are infected but not showing symptoms.

    It is especially important to wear a mask when you are unable to stay at least 6 feet apart from others since COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet)."
