I have designed clear masks for family and friends to wear. After months of design and redesigning I am proud of the end result and I'm starting to sell them to other people. By now, we all know that masks muffle speech, conceal emotional expression, and can inhibit social connection. I believe masks are necessary to safely open our schools, and I believe clear masks will make a significant difference in the educational experience. I have just been reviewing the guidelines set out for the next school year and I believe clear masks are the best solution. My child is extremely shy and soft spoken so I find it important that people can see their face and it is important that they see peoples faces when they are talking. I am an artist by trade so to solve this I have made this solution for them. I might not be the only one making clear masks but I do feel my design has many advantages.
