Safe Col­lab­o­ra­tion
Got­Masks­MA requires all col­lab­o­ra­tion to be done using social dis­tanc­ing. Please arrange for a safe way to pick up or drop off masks with­out human con­tact (e.g., leav­ing masks on a porch). You’re wel­comed to have the masks sit in a bag for a 3+ days before exchang­ing them so the germs die off. We also rec­om­mend you get 2 masks per per­son (so you have one to wear and one in the wash).

When you get your reusable masks: what to do?
Even though every­one is prac­tic­ing safe prac­tices while mak­ing, DO NOT just put on your mask as soon as you get it! You must wash your new mask(s) in hot water and dry on high heat before using it for the first time.

In between wears?
The best bet is to wash your reusable mask after each use in hot water and dry on high heat. Some oth­er options (vet­ted by a nurse): If you live some­where sun­ny, place it in sun­light for sev­er­al hours (if lying flat, make sure to flip and do the oth­er side!). If you won’t be using it for a while, place it in a cool dry place (brown bag is good) for 3+ days and the germs will die off on their own.
