Leaders all over the world are requiring their citizens to wear masks in public to combat the rapid spread of the virus we face today. Most recently, the U.S Federal Government publicly recommended masks for all to slow or stop the spread of the virus.
However, decades of offshoring, complemented by China’s vast, cheap labor pool and canny government incentives which fostered an extensive ecosystem for manufacturers, has Led to a mask shortage in this Pandemic. In fact, Us department of Health and Human Services estimates that 95% of surgical masks and 70% of tight-fitting respirators such as N95 masks are made overseas.
Consequently, the use of cloth face masks has been proven by the CDC to help slow the spread of COVID-19. However, obtaining masks during this time is extremely difficult, and people cannot access a protective mask.
As a solution, a Virtual U.S company, Gunslinger Business Development LLC, in partnership with the domestic medical supply (DMS) Coalition, has made cloth masks widely accessible to the general public.
The masks are made in the USA from 100% cotton. It has a two-strap design that can be worn around the head and neck, preventing ear chafes/burns from elastic.
The straps are adjustable and can be tied and tightened to anyone’s preferred fit. They feature an adjustable nose that the wearer can form to the contours of the face. Better yet, they are reusable masks that are machine washable.
Gunslinger Business Development LLC is working closely with these companies: LA Apparel, Creative Brands, Upcycle, MF Inc., Frame Denim, Hedley & Bennett, Kid Dragon, Civil Clothing, and Kilogear.
Gunslinger Business Development LLC states that no credit card is needed to order for any of the masks; it’s exclusively pay upon arrival. The orders are processed on a first come first serve basis. The orders, which can be made at www.healthdefendercom.org are shipped within 48 – 72 hours.
