COVID-19

Many people have asked us about the effectiveness of our Wraps against COVID-19:

 In the following text you can read what the CDC says about it:
 

“CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.  Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators.  Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance”.

Accordingly , Wrap! is not intended to be used as medical-grade face mask or as a replacement for N95 respirator as effective measures to prevent disease, illness, or spread of viruses.

2. What is the protection offered by Face Mask Bandana against the COVID-19?

The main contribution is made from slowing down the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus without knowing (asymptomatic patients, for example) from transmitting it to others. It is important to mention that they are NOT surgical masks or N-95 respirators.  Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

3. When do you need to wear a Face Mask Bandana?

 A Face Mask Bandana should be worn whenever people are in a community setting, especially in situations where you may be near people. These settings include grocery stores and pharmacies. These face coverings are not a substitute for social distancing. Face Mask Bandanas are especially important to wear in public in areas of widespread COVID-19 illness

4. Do I still need to stay at least 6 feet away from people if wearing a Face mask?

Yes. Wearing a Face Mask Bandana is an additional public health measure people should take to reduce the spread of COVID-19. CDC still recommends that you stay at least 6 feet away from other people (social distancing), frequent hand cleaning and other everyday preventive actions. A Face Mask Bandana is not intended to protect the wearer, but it may prevent the spread of virus from the wearer to others. This would be especially important if someone is infected but does not have symptoms.

5. Who should not wear Face Mask Bandana ?

Face Mask Bandana should not be placed on young children younger than 2 years of age, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance.

6. Why CDC recommending Face Mask Bandana instead of medical grade face mask?

Surgical masks and N95 respirators are in short supply and should be reserved for healthcare workers or other medical first responders, as recommended by CDC guidance.

7. Should Face Mask Bandana  be washed or otherwise cleaned regularly? How regularly?

Yes. They should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use.

8. How does one safely sterilize/clean a Face Mask Bandana ?

A washing machine should suffice in properly washing a Face Mask Bandana.

9. How does one safely remove a used Face Mask Bandana ?

Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their Face Mask Bandana and wash hands immediately after removing.
