Gator has introduced multi-use double-layered face masks designed for eating and drinking in public. Originally, the masks were made for musicians to enable them to play their instruments while wearing a mask that helps reduce the spread of aerosols. According to Gator, the patent-pending design adheres to recommendations from NFHS data about aerosols.
“What makes our mask unique is that our team designed a patent-pending solution that uses magnets to keep the mouth flap open and closed,” Rob McCoy, director of product management, explained. “This allows you to eat and drink comfortably and easily while helping to mitigate the amount of aerosols.”
“Gator was attentive to our recommendations from the International Performing Arts Aerosol Study,” added James Weaver, NFHS director of performing arts and sports and study chair. “They took a listen, test and learn approach to create products that effectively address the findings of the study.”
The masks are available in youth and adult sizes and have adjustable straps for comfort. The masks are also reusable and hand-washable.
