The Marena Group LLC, a Georgia-based medical device manufacturer, announced that it has immediately begun producing new non-surgical masks for children in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The washable and reusable antibacterial masks will be produced in three different sizes suited for children ages 5-16.

According to recent guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), children 2 years or older should wear “cloth face coverings” when they are in “community settings” to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

In April, Marena announced its pivot to production of reusable antibacterial non-surgical masks. Its product is authorized for sale under a US FDA Emergency Use Authorization as a Non-Surgical Face Mask (Class I medical device) for use by the general public.

Now, Marena is ensuring the whole family has properly sized, comfortable masks to stay healthy and safe.  Marena’s masks for children are durable, breathable, flame resistant, and have antibacterial protection to help guard against the spread of COVID-19.

“We are delighted to announce our expansion into children’s masks and proud to be a US-based leading force in the effort to help protect our communities during this pandemic,” said Dale Clendon, president and chief executive officer of The Marena Group.
