This product has been authorized by FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use as source control by the general public and by healthcare providers in healthcare settings as to help slow the spread of infection or illness during the COVID-19 pandemic. This product is: (1) not intended for use as a surgical mask or to provide liquid barrier protection; (2) not recommended for use in a clinical setting where the risk of infection through inhalation is high;  (3) not intended for antimicrobial or antiviral protection or related uses; (4) not intended for infection prevention or reduction; (5) not a respiratory protective device and should not be used for particulate filtration; and, (6) not for use in high-risk aerosol generating procedures.

Governments and health agencies in different countries have different perspectives. Some believe that face masks worn in public can help flatten the curve. When considering whether masks are right for you, we recommend you consult your country’s latest national and regional guidelines.

No. These single-use masks should not be worn for more than four hours of continued use and should be thrown away after that. If you’re interested in reusable face masks, we do offer other alternative with replaceable filter systems.

Surgical masks: A mask that covers the user’s nose and mouth and provides a physical barrier to fluids and particulate materials. Surgical masks intended for medical purposes are considered medical devices. The mask meets certain fluid barrier protection standards and Class I or Class II flammability tests. Surgical masks are also tested for biocompatibility and are considered personal protective equipment (PPE). While surgical masks 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. Surgical masks are not respiratory protective devices (unlike respirators).

The FDA regulates face masks, including cloth face coverings, and surgical masks as medical devices when they are marketed for medical purposes. Medical purposes include uses related to COVID-19, such as face masks to help stop the spread of disease, surgical masks, and surgical masks with antimicrobial/antiviral agents. Face masks marketed to the general public for general non-medical purposes, such as for use in construction and other industrial applications, are not medical devices.
