WHEN WILL I GET MY MASK?
Due to demand, we have two week+ wait period. We admittedly got bombarded with requests after Governor Wolf’s 4/3 announcement. We are currently rolling out these 4/4-4/7 requests (as of 4/22).
WHAT MATERIALS ARE IN THE MASKS?
We are using a layer of non-woven polypropylene (NWPP) covered with cotton or cotton blend fabric. The NWPP is similar to the lining of surgical masks, providing the filtering. Fabric provides additional filtering plus next-to-skin comfort.
WHO ARE THE MASKS FOR?
We currently concentrating on our local Pittsburgh community, prioritizing frontline, essential workers: grocery, municipal, medical personnel who can not stay home.
Civilians are encouraged to stay home if they can, and to properly use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including masks, when going to the store or public buildings.
