Buy a Cloth Face Covering from our Costume Shop
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urged all Americans to cover their faces while out in public to prevent the spread of the COVID-19, and face masks have been in high demand. In response, artists from our costume shop have been making fabric face masks and distributing them to Emory Healthcare for weeks. To date we've delivered over 3,000 fabric face masks to frontline workers, and now, we'd like to make them available to you for $10 per mask.*
Here are some key fundamentals to wearing a cloth face covering correctly:
One of the most important requirements of an effective cloth face covering is that it covers your mouth and nose, and fits snugly along all sides of your face―you don’t want any gaps that’ll allow extra air or virus particles to flow in. Keep in mind that wearing a nonsurgical face mask cannot completely prevent you from contracting COVID-19―if anything, wearing a cloth face covering does more to prevent you from spreading the disease than it does to keep you from catching it.
