As the 2020 winter months advance unfortunately reports are showing an increase in COVID-19 cases as predicted. The CDC is still recommending the use of face masks and a majority of local and state governments have issued mask mandates. Even after vaccines are distributed experts predict mask mandates will largely remain because it will be too difficult to determine if some actually has had the vaccine.
Technik Mfg. understands the importance of easily accessible disposable face masks for all public environments. In response to the need and demand for face masks, we’ve designed and manufactured the first-ever “Touch-less” Face Mask Vending Machine.
Who Should Wear Face Masks?
At this point, everyone understands that face masks are recommended by the CDC and required in most public spaces. But there are some things to know about who should and should not wear a mask. The CDC says that everyone over age 2 should wear a mask in public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household.
You should wear a mask when caring for someone who is sick with COVID-19. If you think you may have COVID-19 or have tested positive, it’s recommended to wear a mask when you need to be around people, even in your own home.
Who Should Not Wear a Mask?
The CDC says the following individuals should not wear masks:
- Children under age 2
- Individuals that have trouble breathing
- Individuals with sensory, cognitive, or behavioral issues that cannot tolerate a mask
What Type of Mask Should You Wear?
The number one most recommended mask is a non-medical disposable mask. The mask should fit snugly around your nose and chin with no large gaps around the sides of the face. Masks made of breathable materials like cotton are recommended. Knitted or loosely woven fabric masks that allow light to pass through should are not effective protection.
Disposable Mask Kiosk Machines
Technik’s “Touchless” Face Mask Kiosks allow individuals to purchase a disposable mask without touching any part of the machine. They simply swipe, insert, or tap with a credit card, and a new disposable mask is dispensed in a 1” dia. x 4” long capped perma-seal tube.
The tube is easy to open and is recyclable. The “small profile” style cabinet can be wall-mounted, counter-top mounted, or used with a base as a floor model. Whether you choose to install it in a permanent location or use it remotely as a mobile supplier for face masks, this machine will consistently meet your needs.
