CDC recommends using a Face Mask when in public.
The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention recommends we cover our faces with a mask when we are in public. An increasing number of countries are now recommending the general population wear masks in public and in places where social distancing is compromised. Due to the shortage of N95 and Surgical masks, this often means using a homemade mask. The effectiveness of homemade masks varies depending on the fabric used, the style and the fit
Important note – always wash your hands before you touch the filters. Dispose of them once used immediately, and then wash your hands again.
Our mask is not intended to replace surgical face masks and it is not PPE certified. The wool filter inserts are tested in house by our Supplier but as a whole it has not been tested. Inserts do not meet N95 standards but are designed to give 80% filtration of 0.3micron size at normal breathing rates.
This is not an N95 mask. N95 refers to a safety standard for industrial use. These are also becoming available, but are typically more expensive, very uncomfortable for prolonged use and unsuitable for people with breathing difficulties, under exertion, or for children (N95 is an INDUSTRIAL standard for adults in the workplace).
Wearing a face mask certainly does not guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols and aerosols can penetrate masks in a variety of ways.
Basic hygiene measures are the most important way to stop the spread of infections, including the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Basic hygiene measures include:
- hand hygiene – that is, washing hands regularly with soap and water, or cleansing with hand sanitiser
- staying at home if you are sick
- coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow and then performing hand hygiene
- cleaning surfaces regularly.
Please note, for hygiene reason these filters will need to come in their original plastic packaging as this is how we get them from our supplier.
