Face Masks, Like COVID, Will Be With Us for Some Time

Face masks will not be going away entirely for some time.

Across the country, people are wondering if they will still be wearing face masks now that society has largely begun reopening. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that fully vaccinated Americans no longer have to cover their faces unless they are in a large crowd of strangers.

But are face mask requirements going away entirely? Not likely. It would be prudent to keep some on hand, at least through the summer and probably longer.

As a solution, we propose our Ear Loop Face Masks. Not only are they an important tool for controlling the spread of germs, but they’re also essential in any environment where airborne dust is a nuisance.

These masks are light and comfortable while providing dependable protection. The material is 3-ply, for filtration of up to 3 microns. And best of all, we’re offering cases at a 30% discount.

A deal simply too good to pass up

Why the bargain? Yes, there are a lot of face masks for sale out there. Simply, we have inventory and are committed to being ultra-competitive on pricing. Deals this good will not be plentiful.

Customers who might be inclined to lay in a case or two of face masks include industrial facilities where employees work in tight quarters, jan/san operations, retail stores, indoor restaurants and bars that attract large crowds, and anywhere that seniors are likely to gather.

Immunity is not happening anytime soon

Throughout the pandemic, we heard talk of “herd immunity”: the point when enough Americans would be protected from the virus so we could reclaim our lives.

Now, more than half of adults in the United States have been inoculated with at least one dose of a vaccine. But daily vaccination rates are slipping, and there is widespread opinion among scientists and public health experts that herd immunity is not attainable—at least not in the foreseeable future, and perhaps not ever.

Instead, they are coming to the conclusion that rather than making a long-promised exit, the virus will most likely become a manageable threat that will continue to circulate in the United States for years to come, still causing hospitalizations and deaths but in much smaller numbers.

White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said last week that people may decide to wear masks during certain seasons when respiratory illnesses are more prevalent.

Leaving on a jet plane? Hold onto your mask

Another area to consider is travelers, especially those flying on business trips now that trade shows and the like will begin gearing up again.

The Transportation Security Administration just extended a federal requirement that travelers on buses, trains, commercial flights and at airports wear face masks. The requirement had been set to expire on May 11 and will now be in effect through Sept. 13.

As much as everyone would like to make face masks a thing of the past, they will continue to be part of the coronavirus discussion for some time. With our Ear Loop Face Masks available at a sweet discount, this is a great time to make sure you are prepared for what’s ahead.
