I am not sure what a beard wrap is.  Can you take a picture and send it out to the group?
We had one employee that wears the long beard style, and someone questioned it for his masking. He somehow gets it so that every hair is contained inside his mask and wears it all day long like that… 
They allowed it.. He works in Maintenance so is not in patient care areas the entire day long
Would like to know what the beard wrap is, though.
