Due to concerns over COVID-19, TCA has begun making cloth reusable masks to assist our customers in defending themselves against particles that may increase infection.
These masks are made from the same cotton fabric used in our jackets. The cotton weave is tight enough to block some airborne particles, and two out of the three versions available include a pocket for the user to insert additional filtration material at their discretion. 18-gauge wire is sew into the nose bridge for adjustment.
This (or any) mask should be washed or sanitized as soon as possible after any contact or potential contact with someone suspected of being infected. We recommend washing in cold water with detergent and hanging to dry, just like our uniforms.
PLEASE NOTE: This mask is designed to HELP prevent direct mouth/nose contact with airborne particles when worn properly. We cannot guarantee effectiveness because a mask is only one part of protecting yourself from airborne particles. Following CDC and WHO guidelines (including but not limited to: proper social distancing, hygiene, and self-isolation where necessary) are still considered the best ways to prevent infection. Our mask is only a tool in that arsenal and is being made available to assist in protecting yourself.
Straps available in black or white.
Colors of outer shell available in the following:
