New face masks made in Australia for Coronavirus
Sharkskin has been manufacturing the Envirus face mask since May this year for our front line workers protection against the Coronavirus.
Dive Gear Australia is now stocking and helping to distribute these masks to the public to help stop the spread and protect us all against covid19.
On the 23/07/2020, it will be now mandatory in Victoria, Melbourne, to wear a face mask when you are out in public, and we can see that other states will follow soon. Wearing a mask will soon become part of the new normal especially at large events like Football, using public transport and enclosed spaces, basically anywhere where that social distancing will be proven very difficult to maintain.
As we know the Coronavirus appears to be primarily carried in water droplets. For this reason, sharkskin created the Envirus face mask range because of there access to unique fabrics and materials that we have been using for scuba diving, snorkelling and many other water sports activities.
Sharkskins fabric is tested to medical-grade Level 1 with a water repellent outer that will increase protection. The outer fabric passed an independent spray test to international standard AATCC 22-2017, at the highest rating of 100 indicating no sticking or wetting of the face.

How to use Envirus Face Masks
Cloth face masks should be worn in public settings where social distancing measures are challenging to maintain, such as in grocery stores and in areas of significant community-based transmission. Masks are considered an additional action and are not a substitute for other safe practises such as social distancing, proper hand sanitising and testing.
1. Sanitise hands before handling the mask
2. Place mask over mouth and nose
3. Pull elastics overhead for a snug fit
4. Mould nose bridge to fit the face
5. Do not touch your face mask while wearing it
Remove the mask by lifting off without touching the front of the mask or your face. Wash your hands immediately after removing your mask. If you accidentally touch your mask, wash or sanitise your hands. Wash in hot water with detergent between use and dry.
