Absolutely love this mask!
Working as a Community Nurse during this pandemic has been challenging to say the least. During every shift, as per Public Health England’s guidelines, I wear a 3-Ply, single use surgical mask. I have found these to be poor fitting and cause myself and my colleagues sore throats and breakouts of spots. When wearing any face covering for a length of time, they become moist, thus becoming the optimum breeding ground for bacteria. Unfortunately, as we in the NHS have to wear single use masks, it can’t be helped. However, as we also have to wear masks in our cars when carrying students and back at the office when giving handover etc, I cannot wait to wear my SilverGuard face mask. Due to the silver thread in the lining, I know that I at least get a break throughout the day of bacteria, and the cotton gives my throat some relief from the loose fibres in the single use masks. I wear the regular pleated style which is a perfect fit for me and can honestly say that I feel safe and reassured when wearing it. I have washed mine many times now and it has not lost its shape.
