This school year is certainly different from any other in recent times because we are in the midst of a pandemic. We have four main defenses to try to keep them healthy: boost their immune systems, have them wear the right PPE (personal protective equipment), and make sure they know to wash their hands frequently and stay socially distant. Small children need small child sized masks to protect them well. That is why I am happy to partner with Protect|ED, a personal protective equipment (PPE) company that is leading the charge to help schools nationwide prepare for in-person learning this school year.
My husband is a teacher and my kids are both school aged so you can bet I am 100% vested in making sure they stay healthy. For them, for us, and for their grandparents who live near by. Honestly, we want to protect ourselves and everyone else.
Specialized Masks For Children Protect Better
One of the things we can all do to help stop the spread of coronavirus is wear the right PPE when in public. For most of us, this means wear a mask! The World Health Organization suggest we all practice social distancing and wear a mask in public as part of the measures to suppress transmission.
The Protect|ED company is helping K-12 school districts, colleges, teachers, and parents on safely returning to in-building learning and activities by identifying and supplying the PPE solutions needed to deliver on customized safety plans for students, teachers and staff. They offer the supplies needed by teachers, custodial staff, school nurses, and parents to send kids back to school as safely as possible. Plus, they offer you the PPE that can be so hard to find for kids- small face masks.
Kids Medical Face Mask: Primary Student (grades preK-2) & Intermediate Student (grades 3-6)
Protect|ED is the only company that offers specialized kids medical masks for young children in the primary student age range. The company’s medical team has used facial studies to develop a face mask that properly fits younger children. The primary student masks are for children from pre-kindergarten through second grade. These primary student masks are smaller in width and height and have shorter ear loops. They also have a special heat weld allows the mask to flex better on the cheeks of a child.
A loose face mask doesn’t provide young children or others around them with protection.
Protect|ED‘s primary student face mask and intermediate student face mask are appropriately sized for young children. This means that the masks are not only more protective but also more comfortable. This helps ensure that a young child will wear it for longer periods.
