    FOR EVERY MASK PURCHASED, 10% goes to Mealshare. Medium Rare is a proud supporter of Mealshare, their partner restaurants and their mission to end youth hunger within our lifetime.

    In March 2020, Medium Rare Chef Apparel shifted its production to make reusable face masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19. In doing so, we supported frontline heroes through our donation program and helped keep Canadian workers employed. As businesses and services reopen and we return to our new normal, we want you to know Medium Rare has you covered – from aprons to face masks. Our face masks are made right here in Canada. Let’s support our local businesses and local charities while we help keep each other – and our employees and customers – safe.

    If you’ve worn our aprons, you know Medium Rare never skimps on quality or style. Our face masks offer the same promise – they’re washable, durable, breathable and will make you look and feel like you’re ready to take on the challenge.

    Using an approved design by Sault Area Hospital (SAH) officials in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, our face masks feature a pocket where a filter can be placed for added protection, as well as a soft wire to help form the mask to your face. Instructions and filter template are included with each face mask shipment. These masks are not a substitute for the N95, surgical or procedural mask.

    SLOW-THE-SPREAD MASK FAQ's

    HOW OFTEN CAN I USE THE FILTER?

    Just once. After each use, dispose of filter and WASH YOUR HANDS. Machine wash your mask in hot water BEFORE first use and again AFTER each use. Tumble dry. Iron as needed.

    WHAT IF MY MASK IS TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL?

    The best solution for a sizing issue is to get a household item (like a string, shoelace, paper clip, elastic band, etc.). Feed this through the ear loops of the mask and then secure at the back of your head when you have found a comfortable length.

    There are also a few strap extender options available online – a couple of these examples can be viewed here. and here

     

    HOW DOES THE HEPA FILTER HELP?

    HOW DO I WEAR MY SLOW-THE-SPREAD MASK?

    Insert HEPA filter into the mask insert. Place it over your nose and mouth and pull the straps around your ears (your mask should fit snug). Press down on the bendable wire around the edge of your mask and mould around your nose and cheeks. Once moulded do not touch your mask until it is time to remove. After each use, dispose of filter and WASH YOUR HANDS. Mask filter template will be available shortly.

    METAL NOSE BRIDGE WIRE ADJUSTERO

    Minimize the amount of adjustment to your metal nose bridge as continuous bending will cause the metal to fatigue and break.
