A rapid Canadian innovation in response to a global shortage

With medical grade supplies exhausted, we worked in consultation with health professionals to develop an evidence-based, reusable face mask. Research found that fabric masks enhanced with additional filtration can improve respiratory protection with an effectiveness of up to 74% against 1-micron particles and up to 70% against 0.02-micron particles. Most recently, the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine found high-quality, high-thread count cotton can produce masks "as good as surgical masks or slightly better".

TakeCare Supply is manufactured in Toronto, Canada. In this time of crisis, TakeCare Supply is helping to keep factory workers employed. They in turn are producing masks and helping to alleviate the critical supply shortage.

These reusable masks are not intended to be a replacement for N95 or medical grade masks, and no claims are being made that they are.
