This piece in the Globe and Mail, written by a critical care physician and an epidemiologist professor at U of T, caught our eye.
They advocate for an airborne prevention approach to the pandemic to address infection that occurs ‘in closed, close, crowded places where aerosols can accumulate’ and appropriately states that ‘COVID spreads by breathing shared air, and infectious air accumulates indoors.’

Primary mitigation strategies shift from two metres distancing and handwashing to ventilation and high-quality masks. Globe and Mail
We hand sew high quality masks. You can choose 2 layer or 3 layer masks and add a nose wire, resulting in you purchasing a very high quality mask from a reputable, Canadian small business. We sew each mask by hand in our homes in Toronto and mail them across the country. We are extremely proud of our Customer Reviews and that nearly all of our Customers re-order from us again and again.
We want to help Canadians feel confident in sourcing high quality, locally made masks from a small business they can trust.
As two formidable Toronto women, we started our small business by hand-sewing all the masks that we sell. We cut four pieces of cotton for every mask and sew them all together to make a smartly tailored, handmade cotton face mask. We take comfort and fit very seriously. You can adjust your mask to your unique face and head size to achieve a comfortable fit, with no gaps. We are careful to select all-natural, tightly woven quilters' cottons in all our masks, and we wash and tumble dry before hand-sewing each mask. We have over 100 styles to choose from, and adding more each week. We are proud to operate an ethical business and having a positive impact on the environment. You can feel good knowing that each mask is sewn by hand right here in Canada.
