In an effort to stay safe and stay healthy right now we’re seeing a rise in the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), most prominently face masks.
We’re hearing a lot about effective ratings to mitigate transfer of COVID-19, but it can be a little unclear who needs what level of protection. We’ve also heard from many of our clients that their unsure what some of the terminology means.
Let’s break this down…
First let’s look at some of the common terminology out there:
The CDC has made this fairly straight-forward for the purposes of ensuring supply is readily available for those who are at a higher risk of coming in contact with COVID-19.
In short, if you are not in a high-risk environment it’s recommended that you simply use a cloth mask or face covering. This will still provide you protection from sharing your germs with others, and also limit your exposure to others.
You can see more details on each of these in our quick-glance guide below:
