The United States just passed the 200,000 COVID related deaths. Estimates are that this could increase to over 350,000 by the end of the year.

As the Center for Disease Control points out, face masks can prevent the passage of COVID-19 via the air in close proximity. The life saving, business training video "Wearing the Mask" can help save lives and put people at ease when asked to wear a mask.

Retail businesses sometimes have problems with customers refusing to wear a mask because they may raise a ruckus. This training video shows employees how they might overcome objections about not wearing a mask while shopping, to protect themselves and others against COVID:19. "Wearing the Mask" can be purchased on DVD for $295.00 (plus shipping) or it can also be set up for online training. The price for online viewing depends on the number of views you anticipate needing. As a government agency your organization qualifies for a 10% discount.

The training video also comes with a reproducible .pdf of tips and explanations that can be distributed to employees.

Here is a short video preview of the training video "Wearing the Mask." Please, contact Ideas and Training by email [email protected] for more information as well as a full length online video for preview only. We welcome questions.
