The Residence Collection and Window Widgets are both offering free facemasks, now that the new face covering rules have come into effect in England from Friday 24th July, 2020.
It will now be compulsory that face coverings are worn in enclosed public spaces such as supermarkets, indoor shopping centres, transport hubs, banks and takeaways. It will be fully enforced according to the government and the Police can hand out fines of up to £100 to those who do not comply.
Window Widgets has already been making use of their 3D printer to produce straps for the facemasks of frontline NHS workers, with the first prototype design validated, produced and sent directly within 24 hours for immediate approval. But this latest initiative for facemasks is to help support the industry and their respective friends and families, as a we enter a new phase of containment for the COVID-19 virus.
Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director of The Residence Collection and Window Widgets commented: ‘This pandemic is a global crisis and so we as a responsible business are looking at ways in which we can support our staff, customers, business partners, communities and the nation as a whole. These facemasks are free, but make sure it’s worn properly as per guidelines across the internet and please abide by the new government requirements.’
