Antiviral Face Covering: Frequently Asked Questions
When do I need to wear an Antiviral Face Covering?
If you cough or sneeze, the Antiviral Face Covering can cut the risk of spreading infection. Healthy people only need a mask if risking contact with others who may be infected. You need to wear a covering if you are out in public, in the proximity of others, if you are isolating at home with family members or others and if you have the virus to avoid transmission to others.
Will the Antiviral Face Covering stop me from infecting other people?
The Antiviral Face Covering helps by offering two-way protection. It can protect others from harmful viruses breathed out through it. But it only helps when combined with strict personal hygiene. Wearing a face covering in certain situations is in line with UK Government advice.
Can I buy the Antiviral Face Covering in stores?
No. The Antiviral Face Covering is currently only available for purchase online.
What is the right way to wear the Antiviral Face Covering?
For maximum protection, pull over your head to cover your nose, mouth and ears. Ensure a snug fit. Rolling or pinning the Antiviral Face Covering will not reduce its effectiveness and can be achieved with non-piercing accessories. Accessories include male, female and children’s hair accessories e.g. clips, ties, bobbles, section clips, grips, butterfly clips, fitted under the back of a cap. For maximum protection, fold the Antiviral Face Covering in half and double up the layers.
Can I wear the Antiviral Face Covering inside out?
Yes. The Antiviral Face Covering’s protein coating, in combination with the material, works in both directions. So it doesn’t reduce the antiviral effect if you wear it inside out.
Can I fold my Antiviral Face Covering over?
Yes, it’s fine to fold your Antiviral Face Covering, as long as you cover your nose, mouth and ears. In fact, a double layer of the fabric increases the anti-viral effect.
Does the Antiviral Face Covering lose its shape?
The Antiviral Face Covering is manufactured to the highest standards from natural fibre materials to allow the coating to impregnate the fibres. Prolonged wear without washing may result in the fabric becoming loose. Tightening with a clip will support repeated wear and hand washing will help restore its original shape and fit.
Can a child wear the Antiviral Face Covering?
The Antiviral Face Covering is presently only available in one size. However, worn clipped or folding double should give a snug fit to most children.
Can I wash my Antiviral Face Covering?
Yes. We recommend a maximum of three hand washes in warm water without detergent. Washing will restore its original shape and fit after prolonged use.
How do I wash my Antiviral Face Covering?

Can I dry my Antiviral Face Covering in a tumble dryer or on a radiator?
We do not advise drying on a radiator or in a tumble dryer. High temperatures can damage the antiviral coating and reduce its effectiveness.
Can I iron my Antiviral Face Covering?
We do not recommend ironing your Antiviral Face Covering. High temperatures can damage its antiviral coating.
Can I dry clean my Antiviral Face Covering?
