Coronavirus is primarily transmitted through tiny droplets of saliva ejected when we speak, which is why wearing a mask is a simple but effective step to take to create a protective shield from these droplets. Research supported by Nobel prize-winning virologist Harold Varmus has shown that placing a layer of cloth in front of a person’s face stops 99% of the droplets.
It is important to remember that, whilst they are effective, these steps don’t replace the need for social distancing and hand-washing. We need to use the entire set of tools we have in our toolbox to stop this killer.

If you don’t fancy making your own mask, then wear and share ours. We have partnered with one of our manufacturers in Portugal to make non-medical masks for personal use. Our masks are sold in packs of 5, including 4 adult masks and 1 for a child up to 12 years of age. With every pack bought, we will send you an additional pack of 5 masks, to share with your neighbours.
