Surgical or N95?
Many of our customers ask which option is best for them.
For most people, surgical masks are great options to help you prevent touching your face, which is the biggest risk in the COVID-19 crisis.
Surgical masks will NOT filter out viruses but they WILL help you prevent transmitting it to others.
N95 and equivalent masks (KN95, etc) will dramatically decrease the chances of the COVID-19 infection.
They’re primarily used on the front line medical staff that are constantly in contact with infected patients.
For normal people, they will be especially useful if a loved one is sick at home and you need to help take care of them.
The CDC has come up with a great comparison chart which we’ll link below:
