How to wear a mask
A mask can provide the protection if it is worn properly.
This means there should be no gap along the edges of the mask between the face and the mask and that the mask should cover from the bridge of the nose to the jawline/chin. It is vital that the mask covers not only the mouth but also the nose. To guarantee adequate coverage of the nose, masks should not be worn below or at the tip of the nose.
|Intended use||Medical masks are intended to protect and reduce the risk of transfer of micro-organisms, body fluids and particulate material transfer|
|Filtration Efficiency||Degree of protection as indicated by ASTM on different levels|
|Air Leakage||At the edges/sides of mask when user inhales|
|Tests and Approvals||Testing done at Health Canada approved Lab, Medical Device licence|
