PLS DO NOTE WASH BEFORE U WEAR IT.

I does wear the cloth masks , well what to do. The surgery mask is expensive next don't say you wear mask can prevent. End of the day try to build up your immune system which is more important and stay at home more if possible beside go out buy your daily needs and straight back home.
I'm still wearing reusable cloth masks, because I shudder to think of the extreme amount of plastic waste we are throwing from the food take-aways packaging and disposable masks....
sigh where do u guys buy ur reusable or disposable masks
well I only have one that is the gov gave one. Just wash after coming back from home buy daily needs next day should be dry and can use again after let it dry near the window.

there's this Masks Sewn With Love project now that teaches ppl how to sew reusable cloth masks. you can make for your family and if you have extra cloth and time, can donate to ppl who need too :) quite an interesting initiative.

otherwise, from what i know, amusse just launched their reusable face masks collection. super pretty fabric. google "AMUSSE Reusable Face Mask"

Hi everyone!

I found this website to buy verifiable surgical masks. They claim to be selling the same surgical masks used by their clinical staff.

I’m pretty sure the government would not distribute ineffective masks if they do not actually help to prevent the spread of COVID. Uncomfortable and low quality? Maybe. Some of them are pretty great though, my favorite government given masks are the white ones with the Merlín logo. So comfortable!
