Double layer camouflage ripstop cotton, adjustable ear loops, machine washable, CDC recommended. *ALL SALES FINAL*
The CDC is recommending everyone to wear a cloth face mask to slow the spread of COVID-19. The TBG face mask is made of a ripstop cotton with woodlands camo print, backed with second layer of black cotton.
The ends of the mask are open to allow the insertion of a medical grade surgical mask for an added layer of protection.
The camo cotton masks alone are not rated for filtration and are not medical grade. They will not stop a virus, but will slow the spread and are much better than nothing.

CDC on Homemade Cloth Face Coverings
CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
Should cloth face coverings be washed or otherwise cleaned regularly? How regularly?Yes. They should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use.
How does one safely sterilize/clean a cloth face covering?
A washing machine should suffice in properly washing a face covering.
How does one safely remove a used cloth face covering?
Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing.
