My growing collection of non-medical masks, which hang by the front door, ready to grab when I leave my house. The beads on the straps help these masks fit more securely on my face – a suggestion made by an employee at Oshawa’s Ultimate Sewing Centre! I was on the hunt for toggles and she recommended beads.
Masks were made mandatory to wear in all indoor spaces in Durham Region as of July 10, 2020 to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
