As COVID-19 cases continue to surge around the country, Boulder County has indefinitely extended the face covering ordinance. This is the perfect time to stock up on some new face coverings! I always like to have a few handy in my car and around the house, especially since you’re supposed to wash them after every use. Many downtown businesses are now selling their own face coverings, so keep reading to learn how you can keep yourself and others safe during this time while also getting some cool new coverings!
Cured is selling these handmade masks online and they come in three different patterns and are reversible! You can choose which size you’d like and they’re available for pick up or delivery. If you’re looking for some really unique masks, Savvy on Pearl is selling masks made out of swimsuit material! Each one is made in the U.S. and comes equipped with two filters to work twice as hard at keeping you and those around you safe.
Another fun option is the masks that the owner of El Loro is making herself. These masks come in adult, kid and infant sizes, which is great if you need to bring your kids out with you to run a quick errand. Another downtown business offering cloth masks is Canova, and theirs come complete with adjustable straps and are made locally. If you’re still on the hunt for some stylish yet functional face coverings, check out Alpaca Collection, Shoe Fly, Bliss, Where The Buffalo Roam, Fabricate, Goorin Bros, Weekends and Two Sole Sisters! Island Farm is also offering bandanas that make for a cute face covering, and Art Mart has a variety of cloth masks along with bandeaus that can be worn around the neck and pulled up to cover your face when needed.
Face coverings are a simple way to stop the spread of the virus and keep yourself and others safe. Remember to always wear yours when walking downtown (that means covering your nose, too!), continue to practice social distancing and wash your hands as often as possible. The health, safety and recovery of our Boulder community depends on each of our individual actions.
