When the coronavirus (COVID-19) began spreading in the United States, the FDA immediately recommended reserving N95 respirator masks for healthcare professionals. These tight-fitting masks filter out 95% of particles in the air, including both large and small droplets, making them a must-have for those on the front lines of the pandemic.
In conjunction with this, the CDC recommends the use of cloth face coverings for all non-healthcare workers in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Wearing a face covering that fits securely over your mouth and nose can protect you in public settings as well as help you protect those around you in case you are infected but don’t have any symptoms.
Seeing a need for high-quality masks that are even more effective than cloth alternatives, a brand called SafeMasks set out to create their KN95 Mask.
SafeMasks’s KN95 Mask meets the same standards as the Chinese KN95 medical-grade mask. Each mask includes a dual particle layer which effectively blocks 99% of particles you inhale and 70% of particles you exhale. Plus, thanks to its nose clip and ear straps, you can enjoy a comfortable fit all day long.
However, it is important to note that any mask you wear is only as effective as how you wear it. According to the CDC, “achieving an adequate seal to the face is essential” as this helps resist leakage around the edges when you breathe. Thus, when you wear your KN95 mask, be sure to position it so that it fits securely over your mouth and your nose. Take a minute to check and adjusts the edges to ensure a comfortable, protective fit.
These masks are also backed-up by the FDA and CE, so you can feel confident that these masks will do exactly what they say they will do.
