Protective face masks that cover the mouth and nose have become a highly sought-after commodity in 2020 as the world deals with the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.
As the United States faces a shortage of protective face masks, respirators, face shields, medical gowns, and other items of personal protective equipment (PPE), companies that do not specialize in medical supplies have begun to produce the PPE most-needed by those on the front lines of the COVID-19 fight.
Dolfin Swimwear, a division of Elite Sportswear and one of ICCG's valued customers, has begun producing protective face masks and mask covers for those in need of them. Face masks and covers will only become more important following a recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that all individuals wear some kind of a face cover.
“During this unprecedented time, Elite Sportswear recognizes the importance of finding ways to support each other, and our Nation. That is why we are utilizing our production and manufacturing facilities to create essential medical supplies – protective masks and mask covers.
To all doctors, nurses, first responders, medical workers and essential personnel, we thank you for everything that you do. To our team, we are proud of you for helping make these needed materials happen. We are here for you and will come out strong, TOGETHER,” said Girisha Chandraraj, President and CEO of Elite Sportswear.
