Health Canada’s Updated Mask Recommendations

Health Canada has recently updated their recommendations for mask choices.

Make sure your mask fits. Choose the correct size, and use ear elastic adjusters and adjust your nose wire to create a close fit.

To quote Health Canada, “no matter which type of mask you choose, proper fit is a key factor in its effectiveness.”

“Some non-medical masks can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 similarly to medical masks if they:

  • fit well
  • have multiple layers, including at least 2 layers of breathable tightly woven fabric, such as cotton and
  • an effective middle filter layer”

All of our masks are made of tightly woven cotton, and include a non-woven poly filter.
