Face Masks by Local NGO

In an effort to be prepared against COVID-19, Department of Health and Social Affairs has partnered with local NGO’s for mask production. Local NGO’s such as Sokehs Pah Women Group has produced over 3,000 masks that will be disseminated throughout the FSM community. These mask were sewn according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guideline for cloth face mask:

  • fits snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • completely covers the nose and mouth
  • is secured with ties or ear loops
  • includes multiple layers of fabric
  • allows for breathing without restriction
  • can be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
