Face Masks for Children: Protecting Our Little Ones

Face masks are becoming a part of our everyday lives, particularly since the latest government announcement that face coverings are mandatory on public transport and in hospitals. The new rules, which came into force on Monday 15th June, mean that anyone travelling via a public transport link in England should be wearing a face covering. Those who dismiss the new guidelines face the risk of being refused entry and a fine of up to £100. Additionally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has updated its guidance to recommend that governments ask everyone to wear fabric face masks in public areas where there is a risk of transmission of COVID-19, in order to help reduce the spread of the disease.

With various new rules and guidance being published and the growing concerns of children’s safety upon returning to school and other public facing situations, Trusted PPE was keen to offer a safe solution for all. Our committed team understands that the health and wellbeing of our families and loved ones has never been more important, and equally believe that protecting individuals of all ages across the nation is of utmost importance.

This week we launched our 95% filtration children’s face masks, which strengthens both our product offering and vision, ‘to help our nation protect themselves and their families from the risks posed by the spread of COVID-19.’ Our 3-ply disposable face masks are filtering masks designed to fit younger children and young adults. The masks are made of safe, 3-ply, non-woven material, designed to be breathable and offer comfortable wear. The non-woven design provides vital protection against dust, droplets, bacteria and pollen.

Where should a children’s face mask be worn?

The protection level that our children’s 95% filtering face masks provide means that they will be effective in maintaining safety levels when in public spaces such as hospitals, public transport, shops, airports and schools or nurseries. Trusted PPE is here to offer the nation with trustworthy products, as well as expert guidance.
