Temasek Foundation will be giving out 1 MaskPure™ AIR+ reusable mask to each Singapore resident under its Stay Prepared initiative to help everyone continue to stay safe, as we move towards COVID-19 resilience.
The antimicrobial mask has an N95 filtration middle layer with a Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE) of >95%, and is effective at that PFE for up to 30 weeks when rinsed weekly. It is also more breathable than standard N95 filters, and remains breathable even after repeated rinsing.
To collect the masks, residents must bring along their government-issued IDs or manually key in their ID numbers at any of the #StayMasked vending machines located island-wide. Almost 1,000 machines can be found in community centres/clubs (CCs); Residents’ Committee (RC) centres; select bus interchanges; select recreation centres for migrant workers; Plaza Singapura; and Temasek Shophouse (near Dhoby Ghaut MRT station).
Collection starts on Monday, 10 January 2022, 10.00am and ends on Sunday, 23 January 2022, 11.59pm. There is sufficient stock of free masks, so there is no need to rush.
Additional masks may be ordered online between Monday, 10 January 2022 and Saturday, 22 January 2022, 11.59pm, at $13 each. Interested residents may order up to 5 masks per mask type, subject to availability. To purchase additional masks and to find out more, please visit stayprepared.sg/masks for more information.
