Remember this from the Surgeon General?
“Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS!” U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams tweeted in late February. “They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”
Well things are changing but not completely. N95 Masks need to be reserved for health care workers but the call is out for people to make their own cloths masks or just finding a way to cover their faces in an attempt to not spread the disease to others and a reminder to not touch one's face.
We have headed that call all along and do not sell n95 rated air bandit masks to the general public but we have no made our bamboo poly masks with filter pouch available. We cannot supply an n95 rated filter with the mask but you can source your own which will fit the mask. More filter after after the break.
But first lets find out what TechCrunch is saying about this very subject.
