Cloth face coverings—request yours today!
As previously announced, cloth face coverings are available free of charge for community members to order for home delivery. Two types of coverings are available, handcrafted models made by a group of KAUST volunteers known as “The Masketeers,” and reusable cloth face coverings from a manufacturer in Jeddah.
To request face coverings, please complete this form before Sunday, May 17, as stocks are limited and on a first come, first served basis. The face coverings will be delivered at your front door on a specific day by the Boy Scouts who will provide a contactless delivery.
Wearing a face covering is a complementary public health measure, not a replacement for established preventive measures, which include social distancing, respiratory etiquette, hand washing and avoiding touching of the face, nose, eyes and mouth with hands. Do not use a face covering on children under two years of age.
