AM I AT RISK FOR COVID FROM A PACKAGE/PRODUCTS SHIPPING FROM CHINA?

According to the CDC, there is still a lot that is unknown about COVID-19 and how it spreads. This coronaviruses is thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Although the virus can survive for a short period on some surfaces, it is unlikely to be spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods. Information will be provided on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) website as it becomes available.

A mask does not exempt you from contracting the virus.  Even with a mask, you must still practice social distancing and staying home if not essential.  If Essential, be mindful of others and stay 6ft away.  The CDC has now mandated everyone to use masks to prevent the spread of people who are asymptomatic. Please be safe and mindful of those around you!

WILL THESE MASKS PROTECT ME FROM CONTRACTING THE VIRUS?

The Mask Box makes no warranties, either express or implied, that the mask eliminates the risk of infection or the transmission of viruses or diseases. The mask is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. If you have specific questions about a medical matter, you should consult a doctor or other healthcare provider.
