These re-usable premium masks were originally designed by a retired nurse practitioner to be best for comfort and protection. After sewing over a thousand, some modifications have been made to improve wearability and face fit. The shape of the mask is well suited for those wearing glasses to reduce the fog up. Sewn for durability for multiple washes, these masks come with the fitting adjustable nose wire, 3 layers of fabric.
Please wash the masks prior to use and do not microwave.
XLarge- fits those with beards and large facial features

WHAT IS THE ATRIUM?
This shopping experience is provided by the nonprofit The Atrium -a Creative Innovation Center for Sustainability. Seeking to build a kind, creative and sustainable future for all. Creatives on this platform are using the funds raised from these masks to buy supplies to make free masks for those on the front lines and those in need.
WEARING A CLOTH MASK
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated guidelines on April 3, advising Americans to wear cloth face coverings when out in the community. The guidelines target areas with significant community spread and where social distancing is difficult (like a grocery store). The goal is to minimize the spread from asymptomatic people (who have the COVID-19 illness but show no symptoms) and presymptomatic people (who are infected but aren’t showing symptoms yet).
- Use a fabric mask for no more than four hours at a time, then wash in hot water and dry thoroughly before using it again.
- Put the mask on (don) after washing hands for 20 seconds with soap and water.
- Wash hands again after removing (doffing) the mask. Do not touch the outside front part of the mask as the area is likely to be contaminated.
- You must still practice social distancing and handwashing if you wear a mask. Masks are not absolutely effective and do not allow you to be less vigilant about staying safe!
Cloth masks are not medical-grade N95 respirators. Medical experts believe they may help to prevent an asymptomatic carrier from unknowingly spreading the virus to others. (Sacramento Bee April 2020)
