Summer vacation is over, and kids are heading back to the classroom across the country. While many were hoping to return mask-free, the viral transmission of the COVID-19 Delta variant subjects children to a higher risk of infection. As a result, many states have mandated masks in school.
For students, educators and parents required to wear masks on school grounds, many face challenges from breathing difficulty to mask anxiety. Although research indicates that masks are unlikely to impair children’s social interactions in their everyday lives dramatically, some may have challenges with contextual cues when part of their face is covered. More importantly, educators need to see students faces, smiles and expressions to understand what they’re feeling and if there is confusion around lessons and materials.
How Do we Maximize Protecting our Children in the Classroom?
Mingle Mask, the world’s first invisible face mask, is the ideal transitional mask for students, teachers, visitors and staff who still want in-school protection but don’t need a medical-grade mask.
Mingle Mask is exceptionally comfortable for learners and teachers to wear all day long and provides a safe learning environment. Each face mask features an innovative chin guard that comfortably rests against the face, ensuring eyeglasses never fog up and smiles are visible. The chin guard also helps keep material away from the face, making it easy for those wearing lipstick, lip balm or who suffer from skin conditions like acne. Mingle Mask also keeps the face cooler.
The new eco-friendly masks also allow students and teachers to communicate, interpret and mimic facial expressions, enhancing social and emotional learning.
Mingle Mask is also perfect for attendees to wear at school activities, programs and events. Mingle Mask’s transparent plastic barrier stops wearers from spreading droplets to other people. The mask covers the face and nose, making it easy to breathe and talk without sacrificing safety.
Mingle Mask uses Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved reusable and recyclable materials. Each mask is lightweight, includes comfortable ear hook holders designed for long-term wear and is easy to clean and sanitize every day.
Mingle Mask offers a fun, limited-edition six-pack with colored adjustable strings for an SRP of $12.99. The masks are also available in a 10-pack for $14.99, 25-pack for $33.99 or 50-pack for $54.99 at https://theminglemask.com.
