  • For specific populations, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests transparent masks as an option

    Populations include:

    • People who are deaf or hard of hearing
    • Young children or students learning to read
    • Students learning a new language
    • People with disabilities
    • People who need to see the proper shape of the mouth for making appropriate vowel sounds, e.g., in singing
  • Per the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employers should provide face coverings to all workers at no cost, and must consider reasonable accommodations for those who require clear coverings.

  • We have a resource available about the ClearMask™ brand that can be shared as a link or printed as a handout. The resource contains information on its FDA clearance, regulations, accommodations, and ordering. You may find it to be helpful to share when you enter a public entity, such as the store, doctor’s office, hospital, workplace, and more.
