Wearing masks in public settings is the new normal. Masks are a simple, effective defense against airborne illnesses. While homemade masks and disposable surgical masks protect large-particle droplets, they are not as effective as N95 masks. In healthcare settings, N95 masks and other personal protective equipment are necessary.
An N95 respirator is specifically designed to provide a very close fit and block even the tiniest airborne particles. Healthcare professionals commonly use N95 respirators, but they only offer effective defenses against illness if worn correctly.
Learn how to properly put on and take off an N95 mask with these simple steps.
Be sure to wash your hands before handling your N95 mask. Touching the mask with unwashed hands can spread droplets onto the surface and make it ineffective. Remove facial hair or jewelry that can prevent a tight seal. Here’s how to correctly put on an N95:
When removing the N95, only touch the straps. The mask's body is contaminated, and handling this area increases your risk of contracting an airborne illness. Carefully remove the bottom strap, followed by the top strap.
