Masks: Important to deal with surge in COVID-19 cases

Posted by Sue Fisher on

At this time much of southern Ontario has been moved into a modified version Stage 2 to deal with a surge in new COVID-19 cases.

While mask wearing remains the center of efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, provinces such as Ontario have closed indoor dining and bars, dance studios, and gyms, along with other indoor facilities such as casinos and movie theaters.

Cases in Quebec continue to rise, they are part-way through a month long restrictions on social gatherings. In Manitoba, retailers in Winnipeg will be limiting occupancy and casinos and bars will be closing for two weeks. While cases remain very low in the Maritimes, they have been reported in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with the latter apparently being travel-related. B.C. has also introduced measures to help curb spread.

Today the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, Dr. Theresa Tam, reminded Canadians that we can all do our part individually by committing to proven effective public health measures:

  • self-isolating at home if experiencing any symptoms
  • maintaining physical distancing
  • wearing a face mask as appropriate
  • keeping up with hand, cough and surface hygiene

At we are proud to be doing our part by sewing comfortable cotton masks people can wear.  Several months in this pandemic, we continue to fulfill orders, very often repeat customers, so Canadians (and others) can continue wearing high-quality masks to protect themselves and others from this terrible virus.

If you choose to buy from a small Canadian company like ours, you can be sure to receive a carefully tailored, handmade fabric mask made from soft cotton that washes very well.

Thanks for visiting, we hope you can find masks that you like for yourself and your family to wear comfortably.
