Face coverings

We stock a range of face coverings online so whether you're looking for a fashion forward set for the style-conscious or a pack of handy disposable masks for when you're out and about, we've got you covered. 

It’s important to note that wearing a face covering does not provide protection against coronavirus (COVID-19) but may help reduce the risk of transmission to others in some circumstances if you are carrying or showing symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). Face coverings should not be used as a replacement for social distancing or self-isolation. Regular handwashing, covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and not touching your face with unwashed hands still remain the most important actions. 

Disposable face masks

We currently stock two types of disposable face masks online. Each of our masks conforms to the EN 14683: 2019 standard.

FAQs

Will a face mask provide protection from coronavirus (COVID-19)?

It’s important to note that wearing a face covering does not provide protection against coronavirus (COVID-19) but may help reduce the risk of transmission to others in some circumstances if you are carrying or showing symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). Face coverings should not be used as a replacement for social distancing or self-isolation.

How do I wear my disposable face mask?

Please follow the instructions displayed on the back of the face mask packaging which will tell you how to correctly fit them around your mouth, nose and chin and secure with an ear loop fastening. It is important to wash your hands before and after fitting the mask. Once fitted on the face, you should avoid touching the mask with your hands to help reduce the risk of hand to mask transmission. If you do touch the mask, you should wash your hands again. Our disposable masks should be thrown away with household waste immediately after use. 

Will your range be expanding?

We will be increasing our range of face coverings as soon as possible to include a wider range of reusable masks and disposable masks. Sign up here and we’ll notify you when more go on sale.
