Face coverings. Where do you keep yours? A straw poll of my circle revealed mostly pockets and handbags. None in cases. This does not promote the best hygiene...
There is growing evidence that wearing a face-covering in an enclosed space helps protect individuals and those around them from COVID-19. It just needs to cover your mouth and nose. Face coverings are mandatory on public transport and in a number of indoor premises. I personally have been deciding on every corner whether to wear my mask in the street, based on how busy it is and the risk profile of the people around me.
The gov.uk website has clear advice on how masks should be used and handled (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own); it specifically mentions
- avoid wearing on your neck or forehead
- only handle the straps, ties or clips
I experimented early on with a chain, as I am a confirmed magpie and any reason to wear more jewellery is valid in my book! It has noticeably reduced the amount I touch my mask, eliminated pulling it down under my chin altogether, it is always easily to hand in seconds and it now looks good! What's not to like?
All my 26" - 30" chains are now available as mask chains, with a small fee on top to cover the second clasp or where a small clasp is on the original chain, both new clasps. For extra versatility, a free set of rubber glasses clips will be included so your chain is multi-purpose and can accessorise your glasses or sunglasses.
All clasps will be Sterling Silver or 9ct Gold as stated. The only base metal is on the glasses clips, which will not be in contact with the skin.
