Hong Kong Government to distribute free reusable masks to all citizens

The Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Bureau (ITB) announced on May 5 that Hong Kong Government will distribute free reusable CuMask+™ to all Hong Kong citizens.

The CuMask+™ is developed by the Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel. It is a six-layer mask with special ergonomic features. Two of its layers contain copper which is capable of immobilizing bacteria, common viruses and other harmful substances. The mask complies with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F2100 Level 1 Standard in terms of particle filtration efficiency (PFE), bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE), resistance to penetration by synthetic blood, flammability and pressure resistance, and is reusable for up to 60 washes.

Except for babies and infants, all holders of valid Hong Kong identity cards are eligible to obtain a CuMask+™. Citizens simply need to register on the CuMask+™ website (qmask.gov.hk) from 7am on May 6. The registration period will last until June 6 and each registration can cater for a maximum of six persons. In general, upon successful registration, the CuMask+™ will be delivered to the door by Hongkong Post within two weeks.
