    Hi
    I’ve been making these adapters from your pattern and I’m now told by a nurse who took them to work that they are not to be used due to the adapters carrying the virus? Is this true?

      I would assume that – just like every other article of clothing in a potentially infected environment, and indeed the masks themselves – the adaptor is at risk of contamination.

      I would also assume that it would be necessary to wash the adaptor after every use – again like clothes and the masks that aren’t disposable.

    I only use 100% cotton yarn and acrylic buttons for the mask adapter pattern, so that they can be washed at 60 degrees with scrubs. Sarah-Jayne only used wooden buttons for demonstration purposes.
    Aneurin Bevan University Health Board are allowing the crochet or knitted mask adapters if they are made with the supplies mentioned, but i have noticed that each health board in the U.K. has differing protocols regarding this. You are best to contact your local health board procurement team and find out. Hope this information has been helpful. Carol x
