New 'Covid-19 barrier' face covering launched in bid to bring people back to live events 

18th August 2020 (Music Week). A new Covid-19 barrier face covering is being launched in a bid to enable live events to operate with higher capacities. In a potential breakthrough for the industry, the face coverings are treated with Swiss-based HeiQ Viroblock technology, a "tested and proven" barrier said to significantly counteract airborne transmission of the virus. Colin Graham, founder of HeiQ's UK parner AnyBrand, said the development could provide a "silver bullet" for the live business, minimising the need for social distancing requirements at concerts and other entertainment events.
