LA Sporting Club has manufactured these face masks as a public service in response to requests from both health care professionals and customers who are dealing with a critical shortage of surgical face masks during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: READ BEFORE USING
LAUNDER IN WARM WATER WITH DETERGENT AND TUMBLE DRY PRIOR TO USAGE AND AFTER EACH USE.
From the US Centers for Disease Control:
In settings where face masks are not available, Health Care Providers might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered personal protective equipment, since their capability to protect Health Care Providers is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face. Although the masks do not prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended medical professionals use the resources available to them, including scarves, coffee filters, and cut-up cotton fabrics.
From the US Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA):
Surgical masks are used as a physical barrier to protect the user from hazards, such as splashes of large droplets of blood or body fluids.
Surgical masks also protect other people against infection from the person wearing the surgical mask. Such masks trap large particles of body fluids that may contain bacteria or viruses expelled by the wearer.
Surgical masks are used for several different purposes, including the following:
Placed on sick people to limit the spread of infectious respiratory secretions to others.
Worn by healthcare providers to prevent accidental contamination of patients' wounds by the organisms normally present in mucus and saliva.
Worn by workers to protect themselves from splashes or sprays of blood or bodily fluids; they may also keep contaminated fingers/hands away from the mouth and nose.
Surgical masks are not designed or certified to prevent the inhalation of small airborne contaminants. These particles are not visible to the naked eye but may still be capable of causing infection. Surgical masks are not designed to seal tightly against the user's face. During inhalation, much of the potentially contaminated air can pass through gaps between the face and the surgical mask and not be pulled through the filter material of the mask. Their ability to filter small particles varies significantly based upon the type of material used to make the surgical mask, so they cannot be relied upon to protect workers against airborne infectious agents.
How to put on the LASC face mask:
1. MUST BE LAUNDERED IN WARM WATER WITH DETERGENT PRIOR TO USAGE
2. Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before touching the mask.
3. Examine the mask and make sure there are no obvious tears or holes anywhere on the mask.
4. Hold the mask by the ear loops. The LASC logo is on the front side of the mask. Place a loop around each ear and position the mask so that it covers your mouth and nose and wraps underneath your chin.
