Initially, the Company will begin distribution in Vancouver, then roll out to Calgary, Alberta. Customers will be able to shop on O2 Canada's website directly at www.o2canada.com or purchase the masks through the ParcelPal platform and have it delivered directly to them, either same day or on-demand. ParcelPal will begin implementing this requirement for drivers and employees to wear masks along with other current COVID-19 measures. Product will be available to purchase from ParcelPal in the coming weeks.
As COVID-19 cases are saturating nearly all areas of the globe, virtually all health care workers are using these N95 masks. There is also currently a massive shortage of N95 masks in the world, prompting many hospitals to decontaminate and reuse them.
O2 Canada has witnessed triple digit growth in demand for its masks over the past few weeks. Both ParcelPal and O2Canada expect demand for COVID-19 masks to continue to grow at a significant rate, especially during this pandemic.
President and CEO Kelly Abbott commented "The safety and well-being of everyone who interacts with ParcelPal is always our priority. We are actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are taking steps to help keep our communities safe. We are delighted to be able to offer this product in this time of great need to consumers and potentially health care workers alike."
