✳️ INFORMATION ABOUT NON-MEDICAL CLOTH MASKS:
It is important to note that the BEST way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is social distancing, frequent hand washing and other preventive methods. The CDC recommends wearing a cloth face mask to “prevent the spread of the virus from the wearer to others”. Due to the nature of this product, no returns or exchanges are permitted.
As recommended by the CDC, cloth masks should NOT be placed on 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. Children over 2 should ALWAYS be under supervision while using masks (due to ties on mask).

Recommendations from the Government of Canada in regards to cloth masks include:
“It is important to understand that non-medical masks have limitations and need to be used safely. If you choose to use a non-medical face mask:
-you must wash your hands immediately before putting it on and immediately after taking it off (in addition to practicing good hand hygiene while wearing it)
-it should fit well (non-gaping)
-you should not share it with others
Face masks can become contaminated on the outside, or when touched by your hands. When wearing a mask, take the following precautions to protect yourself:
-avoid touching your face mask while using it
-change a cloth mask as soon as it gets damp or soiled
-put it directly into the washing machine or a bag that can be emptied into the washing machine and then disposed of
-cloth masks can be laundered with other items using a hot cycle, and then dried thoroughly.”
