Wilma, A Borders local, has very kindly made straps for our staff members to stop masks from rubbing the backs of their ears. An amazing gesture, thank you.

With the coronavirus outbreak now reaching peak numbers it’s becoming increasingly important to have access to the correct PPE. Unfortunately, wearing a mask for long periods of the day can have a negative effect on the skin causing pain or irritation. With Wilma’s straps, we will avoid this, as the masks will be supported at the back of the head as opposed to the ears.
