According to current CDC guidance, it is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slow the spread of the virus. CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
We are taking every precaution within our Montana Silversmiths facility to ensure the safety of our employees and limit community spread.
Our Make Your Own Mask initiativeusing T-shirts, scarves or bandanas for example brought forth a creative touch in functional fashion at Montana Silversmiths. The result was style on parade as employees put their own ingenuity to work to create a mask that worked for them.
The civilian cloth face coverings recommended by the CDC are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.
