Which Face Mask is Best for School Children?

Wednesday, 26 August 2020  |  Paul

There are plenty of reasons to want our kids back at school as soon as possible. Extended periods out of the education system may damage their academic progress and cause psychological distress. However, while the risk of coronavirus is still very real, it's essential to provide your child with the right protection.

Which Masks Are the Best for My Child?

For everyday wear in public spaces, one face masks stands out above the rest: The Reusable Copper-Infused Face Mask for Virus Protection.

Reusable Copper Infused Face Mask for Virus Protection

This highly comfortable and breathable mask is an ideal choice for everyday wear for your secondary school child:

  • Antimicrobial: Antimicrobial copper fabric kills viruses and bacteria ON CONTACT, filtering 99% of airborne particles
  • Comfortable: Mask remains breathable for extended periods of wear and fabric promotes blood flow to avoid irritating the skin
  • Child-Friendly: The smaller size option of the mask is perfect for younger secondary school children
  • Practical: Reusable and easy to wash in boiling water for busy mums and dads

What Makes Copper Face Masks So Effective?

Copper is well known in the medical field for its extra-ordinary antimicrobial properties. Copper fabrics have been shown to destroy a range of viruses, including influenza, in under 20 minutes. Under a microscope, copper ions can be seen to rupture and penetrate the cell walls of pathogenic microbes, attacking the DNA and totally inactivating the organism.

Is Copper Effective Against Coronavirus?

A recent study by Copper Clothing Ltd illustrated that copper-infused fabric achieved a 99% reduction and destruction of Coronavirus in 10 minutes. There can be no better choice of face covering to ensure your child's safety as they return to continue their education. See all of our copper infused items below.

What Are the New Rules About Masks in Schools?

In response to a recent update from WHO, the government have released new guidelines concerning face-coverings in secondary schools. As schools begin to reopen for the new year, pupils are encouraged to wear face-masks in public areas such as corridors and dining halls. However, different rules apply for schools that fall within local-lockdown areas and those outside them.

  • Schools in areas of local lockdowns will require compulsory face masks in public areas of the school
  • Schools not in local lockdown can choose whether or not to make face coverings compulsory

Contact your child's school to be certain of their policy. Please note that these face-mask requirements apply only to secondary school children, who are more likely to transmit the virus than those in primary school.

Is School Safe For My Child?

School environments do not lend themselves to social distancing, and many schools across Europe have been force to close due to a dramatic rise in cases following the return of pupils. However, the introduction of compulsory face masks will help to avoid just this scenario. School will remain a safe and positive place for your child as long as the proper social distancing policies are observed.

Will Wearing a Face Mask Negatively Impact My Child's Education?

Some parents have expressed concerns that face masks will make it harder for their children to learn effectively. However, social distancing is far easier inside classrooms than it is in corridors and other public spaces, and therefore face coverings will not be mandatory during lessons.

Will Wearing a Face Mask Negatively Impact My Child's Health?

Far from damaging your child's health, face masks have been scientifically proven to lower rates of virus transmission. Face masks such as the Reusable Copper-Infused Face Mask for Virus Protection are skin-friendly and totally breathable, your child won't even notice they're wearing it!
