Where to buy surgical masks online in the Philippines

Check out these online retailers that can home deliver surgical masks.

Important note

Due to the Community Quarantine being implemented in the National Capital Region (NCR), most sellers’ logistics operations in this area are temporarily suspended. Please expect temporary shortages of essential goods and delays with your deliveries.

It’s also important to be aware that stockpiling items isn’t actually necessary right now and that over-buying can leave others vulnerable.

The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has led to equipment shortages, especially when it comes to masks. The World Health Organisation has recently changed its advice on whether or not people should wear masks. The advice now is that masks should be worn in public where social distancing is not possible to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

If you are in need and are looking to buy surgical masks online, here’s where you can.

When should I wear a surgical mask?

Those who are sick, caring for someone who is sick or health care workers will benefit from wearing a mask. People who frequent public places where social distancing isn’t possible can also benefit from wearing a surgical mask.

If you’re not sick but are required to isolate, you should wear a mask if you need to leave home, for example, to go to the doctor or make a trip to the grocery store.

How do I use a surgical mask?

According to the World Health Organization, before you touch the mask make sure you’ve cleaned your hands with alcohol-based sanitizer or soap and water.

Make sure your mouth and nose are covered by the mask and avoid touching the mask while it’s on to avoid contamination. If you do touch it, be sure to clean your hands.

When you need to take the mask off, be sure not to touch the front of the mask and remove it from the back, and discard it as soon as possible.
