SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Livinguard announced today demand is surging for its reusable protective face masks that are made with fabric treated with Livinguard Technology. Parents are embracing ways to protect their children as they return to in-school learning, and mask mandates are again sweeping the nation.
Livinguard Technology has proven effective against multiple strains of Coronavirus in numerous tests. It showed 99.9% reduction against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) at Freie Universität Berlin and 99.5% reduction against Human Coronavirus 229E at University of Arizona and just last month the technology was proven again with an average of > 99% effectiveness against the Indian isolate of SARS COV 2 (wild version). More information about those tests can be found here.
With the COVID-19 Delta variant driving a resurgence in infections and hospitalizations across the U.S., it’s never been more important to protect children and young people — especially kids under age 12 who are not yet eligible to receive the COVID vaccine but are returning to in-person learning. Livinguard offers advanced features effective for more than 200 days with regular care, enough to last the school year in most areas.
Importantly, all Livinguard masks follow Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for design and snug fit, including its soft, breathable and washable, two-ply models designed specifically for children. An adjustable fit and comfortable cloth not only help combat viruses more effectively, but they also provide long-term wearable solutions for children in the classroom.
“We at Livinguard are committed to making certain that students and others required to wear protective masks as they go about their school and workdays benefit from our patented mask textile technology that has the added benefit of being comfortable to wear,” said Sanjeev Swamy, Livinguard’s Founder and CEO. “Deploying Livinguard’s proven hygiene technology in reusable masks will play a vital role in protecting young people and their teachers eager to safely return to the classroom, and our environment, which faces peril from the effects of millions — if not billions — of carelessly discarded single-use masks.”
Since the start of the pandemic, Livinguard’s reusable masks have provided invaluable protection to frontline workers and others across the globe, including in hard-hit India. In Singapore, more than a million Livinguard masks have been distributed to that country’s residents since the start of the pandemic. And, in the U.S., the company, through its Livinguard Cares program, continues to make an impact in cities with a matching mask program for frontline and other municipal workers, as well as residents.
