We’re living in scary times and now, more than ever, safety is first. Face masks are a huge part of that. In fact, South Korea dramatically curbed the spread of COVID-19 by getting its manufacturers to produce masks and getting them to all its citizens. Without a similar response in the US, many designers are being forced to step up. Here are 9 Black owned companies that have masks.
**Masks are generally useful to mitigate the spread of any germs or viruses you are carrying. Masks don’t necessarily stop you from contracting COVID-19 or other diseases. Also, it is important, when wearing a mask, to not touch your face. This often happens when individuals attempt to adjust their masks**
