You sure can! Just head over to our West Edmonton location (15342 111 Ave) and we would be happy to help you.
Due to demand, we are working with a number of other Edmonton companies to get as many masks made as possible. Designs will vary, but all will have nose to chin coverage and over the ear elastics. All masks are made of two layers of tight knit cotton or poly-cotton blend. Upon further research, we decided not to include filter media that was in our original design.
The CDC states laundering with detergent alone is an effective method for cleaning. However, laundering in hot water (160F) and with chlorine bleach is the most effective method for sanitizing laundry. Hang to dry.
There are two sizes, adult and child. They fit an average person. It’s hard to say exactly what this means, you can see sort of in the pictures, but you won’t really know how they fit you until you try it on. We have seen some people with small faces knot the elastic with a little loop to make it tighter.
NO. The World Health Organization is not endorsing masks as a means of preventing illness at this time. Masks provide a physical barrier as a last line of defense when potential contact with people is unavoidable, but there is no guarantee that they help at all. Masks should only be used as a part of an overall avoidance strategy that includes frequent hand washing, physical/social distancing (2m), not touching your mask or face, and disinfecting high touch areas.
Our masks come in two sizes – adult and child, and it is likely that it will not fit you perfectly. If your mask is very loose, we suggest putting a knot in the ear loop to make a snug fit.
Page the Cleaner Fabric Masks
In response to customer demand, shifting global recommendations about mask usage, and the global shortage of rated medical masks, Page the Cleaner has begun to manufacture simple cloth masks here in Edmonton, Alberta.
Cloth masks are NOT rated or tested to Prevent COVID-19. It is a simple physical barrier meant for short term use when properly rated medical masks are not available. If you are sick with COVID-19, or in close contact with a sick person, please seek out properly rated masks.
This mask is NOT a substitute for following government and World Health Organization guidelines on handwashing, face touching, social distancing or disinfecting.
The World Health Organization is not (as of April 6, 2020) recommending or endorsing the use of masks for the prevention of spread of COVID-19, except with approved, rated masks when used according to manufacturer directions in close contact settings.
The most important things you can do to stop the spread of COVID-19 are:
- Practice physical distancing as much as possible
- Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently and use high alcohol hand sanitizer when hand washing is not available
- Do not touch your face unless you have just washed your hands, and then you need to wash your hands again
- Disinfect high touch surfaces frequently
Best Practices When Using Any Mask:
- Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before putting on the mask
- Cover mouth and nose with mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask
- Avoid touching the mask when using it, if you do, wash your hands.
- Replace the mask when it gets damp and do not re-use single use masks.
- When re-moving a mask, remove it from behind
