The CDC recommends the use of face coverings and masks in any situation where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. This is to protect people around you if you are infected but don’t feel sick. Disposable and reusable face coverings should cover both the mouth and nose. They should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face and be secured with ties or ear loops. Reusable face coverings should be laundered and dried regularly.
R.S. Hughes is committed to supporting public health by meeting the needs of a global demand. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure the timely delivery of any inventory we have on hand. Our universally-sized reusable face coverings are washable, breathable, and made with a polyblend fabric. Other face coverings include face shields, full-face respirators, and safety glasses. CDC research suggests that touching the eyes and mouth can increase the risk of spreading. Avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth by using face masks and eye protection when in public.
Cloth face coverings should fit snug against the mouth and nose. Wearing a face mask may help slow the spread of the virus from asymptomatic individuals to those more vulnerable, but social distancing practices must be maintained to completely slow the spread of the virus. Wearing a mask is not a substitute for social distancing.
Maintaining social distancing in the workplace isn’t always possible, and business owners concerned with the well-being of their customers and employees will benefit from providing their staff with face masks and shields. Browse our extensive selection of face masks to use during COVID-19.
