Q: Are these masks acceptable for use in a medical setting? Can healthcare professionals use them against COVID-19?
No – these are designed for personal use in non-medical settings. They are not medical devices or personal protective equipment (PPE). While they provide a physical barrier, they do not provide the same fluid or air filtration protection as licensed masks and respirators.
Q: Will this face mask help prevent the spread of COVID-19?
There are divided points of view on this: Some governments and health agencies around the world believe that wearing face masks in public can help contain the pandemic, while others have stated that doing so does not play a major role. We recommend you consider the guidelines issued in your country of residence.
