THE COVER UP face mask has been created and designed by a French nurse.
"A face mask is the first protection you have to wear to protect you of airborne transmitted diseases. They are so common for us, healthcare providers, that I was convinced, since the beginning of this situation, that I had to do my best for helping and encouraging as many people as possible to wear a face mask when needed. However, I knew how it could be uncomfortable to wear a face mask for a long time. Especiallyif it is not well adapted to your head. It could also be a cause of anxiety. And to be honest, I didn't want to wear a surgical mask everyday! First, it would have reminded me work place, second it's so ugly!!!
My love for sewing rapidly made me sew my firsts face masks for my nurses friends in France, where the face masks shortage is so drastic. With the proper fabric and supplies, the skills and knowledge to design a mask as best as possible and the willing to help people...THE COVER UP initiative was born!"
