Masks are becoming the new normal. Provincial and municipal officials have recommended wearing non-medical masks while in public as an additional measure to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in situations where social distancing is difficult. Already, masks are becoming a new way to express personal style. A number of local Quebec brands have decided to create protective and unique masks themselves. So when it comes to buying a mask in Montreal, you've got lots of options.\nIn Quebec, the government now includes masks in its list of health precautions, along with hand-washing and cough etiquette.\n"Not everyone that has COVID‑19 has symptoms," the government writes on its website.\n"Some people do not even realize that they are infected. Wearing a face covering may reduce the risk of an infected person unknowingly transmitting COVID‑19 to others."\nThere are also some online tips for residents who want to make their own masks.\nBut those of you, like myself, who are not good at sewing are going to want to check these companies out. These masks will be your new favourite fashion accessory, helping you protect your communities in style.\nSome of these companies are even donating sale proceeds to local charities, giving us even more of an incentive to support them.\nUCHUU\nView this post on Instagram Sortez protégé avec style ! 2$ seront reversés à CENTRAIDE CANADA pour chaque masque acheté.
