Masks for schools: a necessary reality

The 2020-2021 school year begins with a new standard: masks for schools. After 6 months closed, the educational centers will reopen their doors this September. Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, classrooms throughout Spain were left empty on March 13.

Along with the backpack and school supplies, the school masks are the new school uniform. From the age of 6 it will be mandatory, according to the Spanish Government. Its use will be regulated by the Autonomous Communities, in the highest instance, and by the directors of each Center, at the local level.

After it has been certified that their effectiveness against the spread of the virus, it is more than understandable that they also go to class. Even more so if we consider that, so far, the ratio per classroom is an average of 25 students. Reason why educational centers of all levels were the first to be suspended.

To avoid the easy spread of the virus in crowded spaces, the general measures that have been considered are:

– Minimum distance of 1.5 meters between students (requires reducing the number of students per class)

– Windows always open to promote proper ventilation

– Hand washing and use of hydroalcoholic gel

– Very frequent cleaning of all common spaces

– Always use of the mask

Although it is true that, when the time comes and depending on the circumstances of each center, the rules may be more restrictive.

For now, given the news that masks for schools will be mandatory, it has been added that rest periods will be established. Especially at the beginning to be able to attend to the individual needs of each student.

However, the general trend will be to wear it. The reality we know is that they are the best way to protect the future of future generations today.

Likewise, experts point out that it is necessary to make responsible use of them both when it is worn and when not. If we want to continue protecting the environment, the most recommended option is to use reusable masks. In this way, we avoid continuing to pollute the planet and that many end up in our seas.

Did you know that climate change is one of the main causes of many diseases? Experts point out that with the melting of the poles, new pathologies will appear.

Aware of this, adolescents have been actively fighting for several years in demonstrations or on social media on this issue. The little ones are also very aware of caring for the Earth thanks to the work of the schools.

Now, the use of the mask is the compulsory subject that all students must successfully pass.

But what will be the masks for schools that are allowed? The so-called surgical (disposable) and the sanitary approved (renewable).

In any case, the institutions insist on the importance of the masks for schools being certified. That is, they have passed the tests and certifications that guarantee that they are safe, such as those of Rewinder.

At Rewinder we think, from the first moment in which we decided to launch our reusable masks, in the young and the smallest. We have always had them very present for the active fight they carry out against climate change.

Faced with a situation like the one we are experiencing; we wanted the 2020-2021 school year to be the safest for them. For this reason, we made the Rewinder30 Viroblock. These are antiviral school masks of the highest quality and reusable for up to 30 washes.

Certified and recommended by health care providers, what sets the Rewinder30 Viroblock apart? Simple: remove the virus. These masks for schools have received a new antiviral and antibacterial treatment developed by HeiQ, specifically against Covid19. Thanks to this technology, the tissue destroys the virus in minutes after it encounters the mask.

Like the Rewinder40, they are made with organic cotton and are hypoallergenic. In addition, different sizes are available (XS, S and M) to make the use of masks for schools as comfortable as possible.

They can be washed by hand or in the washing machine, which makes it easy for each morning to be ready to go to school one more day, young and old will be always safe.

Only in this way can we guarantee safe spaces for students and teachers that allow the development of the course as normal as possible.

Join the Rewinder revolution, let us build the present together by loving our future thanks to masks for schools.
