WE'RE SHOWING SOLIDARITY BY BEING THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE
At AK, we normally create sports uniforms. Starting immediately, we are pleased to direct our production resources towards making non-medical, multi-use, washable fabric face masks to help combat COVID-19. Our hope is that this will allow medical grade PPE to be dedicated to front-line workers and provide the broader population with protection to help slow community transmission.
We strongly believe that medical masks (N95, surgical, etc.) should be reserved for healthcare workers, but the non-medical community needs protection too.
We are committed to make these facemasks for as long as they are needed during these challenging times.
To learn how to properly wear and clean your mask, please be sure to read our FAQs. We also want to remind our community that if you can stay home, stay home.
