Face Masks Made in USA
What a start to the new 2020 decade. Who would’ve thought even two months ago that at this time we would be living through a pandemic. We don’t know about you, but we couldn't have guessed this in our wildest dreams.
First and foremost, we want to express our utmost gratitude and respect for the health care workers fighting COVID-19 on the front lines. For the sacrifices you have made and continue to make, you have our hearts. Your selflessness and strength are the glue that is holding the world together right now.
Second, we hope everyone is doing their part by “social distancing” and staying inside to avoid exposing themselves and those they surround themselves with to this disease! Obviously, it is not realistic to completely eliminate trips to the grocery store, or going outside to get some fresh air. We call this a sanity walk around the block and they have become a daily event for us.
Give Back to Those on the Front Lines
We also think there is no better time than the present to give back to our community, and we are able to do this by supporting local businesses. But, these sorts of situations can raise the issue of being able to abide by the recommended “social distancing” practices.
Within recent weeks, we have learned that the disease can be spread by pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic carriers. Because of this, the CDC recommends that we all wear face masks when we go out in public.
This is especially important because while you may be conscious of keeping a 6 foot distance from another person at the grocery store, they might not have the same awareness. And, while a face mask does not prevent someone from getting sick, it has proven to be a useful device in the containment of COVID-19.
Whether you currently reside in a state that requires you to wear a mask in a public setting, or not, we want to stress to you the importance of doing so.
For every mask purchased, 2 masks will be donated to those working on the front lines. The 5 pack is an assorted mix of our stylish novelty prints.
Here are some of the benefits of wearing a face mask:
- By covering your nose and mouth, you are protecting others - this means at risk individuals whose lives depend on it!
- A mask is going to catch any cough or sneeze droplets that would otherwise infect people - if using a disposable one, make sure to throw it away after **ONE USE & ONE USE ONLY **
- Face masks are a REMINDER for others to stay away & wear one.
- Consider it your badge of honor. You care about your community enough to wear one. Hopefully they will do the same.
- If you buy a reusable one, you’re not only protecting others, but also the environment. We <3 sustainability. (In this case, be sure to wash after every wear!)
- The sooner you wear a mask, the sooner all of our lives can go back to normal(ish) - (Precautions will still be just as, if not more important when things begin to open again!)
- And the obvious, to protect yourself.
What We Can Do
To do our part, we will be making our own cloth face masks that will be available for purchase! We are devoted to creating high quality face coverings that can assist in curbing COVID-19.
Our fabric face masks are not double layered but 3-ply with a pocket for a filter. Our stylish face cover masks are sold in a variety of fun stylish prints. That way, you can still make a fashion statement while doing your part. All BeachCandy masks are made in the U.S.A. in the fight against COVID-19.
So, please please please wear a mask, wash your hands, and stay inside.
And, if you’re having a bad day or find yourself feeling angry at the current situation, know that you are entitled to that and you’re certainly not the only one. Navigating our “new normal” is going to take time and patience. Have grace with yourself and with others.
Take this time to do the things you would otherwise brush under the rug for another time. Call someone who you haven’t talked to in a while and catch up.
Sit outside and read a book. Do a puzzle. Have a drink- whether that be at noon or 5 p.m. We too are firm believers that anything goes in quarantine. Learn more about our chic staycation resort wear collection or our off-the-shoulder swimsuits for women.
Above all else, allow yourself to feel all the feelings of frustration, stir-crazy, fulfillment, hopefulness, and everything in between. After all, we’re all only human. May you stay safe & shine on. Sending you love & support from our family to yours.
