Face masks

The most common types of face masks are:

  • Standard Face Masks
  • Surgical Masks

A Standard Face mask:

  • Mask comes with or without a face shield.
  • Covers the user’s nose and mouth and may or may not meet fluid barrier or filtration efficiency levels.
  • Not considered medical devices.
  • May be used by the general public and health care personnel.

A Surgical mask:

  • Mask covers the user’s nose and mouth and provides a physical barrier to fluids and particulate materials.
  • Intended for medical purposes.
  • Considered medical devices.
  • Mask meets certain fluid barrier protection standards and Class I or Class II flammability tests.
  • Considered personal protective equipment (PPE).

While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, they do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the mask and your face.
