The source reports that Apple has developed special masks for its employees. And there are two kinds.
The first and the main one is a usual mask of three-layer material, which can be washed and used up to five times. Apple says it has conducted extensive research and testing to find the right materials to properly filter the air. The company will begin distributing the Face Mask to Apple staff over the next two weeks.
The second model is much more interesting. It is called ClearMask, and it is the first fully transparent mask of its kind approved by the FDA. The transparent mask is not made so that Apple Store visitors can see smiles on the faces of the company’s employees.
The mask was created so that deaf or hearing-impaired store visitors could understand what salespeople and consultants are saying. Apple has worked with the University of Gallodet, which specializes in training deaf and hearing impaired students, to create this mask.
The company also notes that the masks were created by the same engineers and designers who work on various Apple devices.
