As countries across Europe start to ease lockdown measures, many are starting to recommend citizens start to wear face masks when they are outside of the home or returning to their working environments. The best way to prevent contracting a virus is to avoid being exposed, especially in public areas or where space is too limited to rigidly adhere to social distancing rules.
Exposures to virus can be reduced through the use of face masks and other PPE. N95, KN95 and basic 3ply masks could be an effective method of protection for COVID 19 (Coronavirus). ID&C offers a range of certified face masks - see further product information below and please contact us if you have any queries or questions.
How do I put on or take off a face mask?
Before putting on a mask, clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Cover mouth and nose with mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask.
Avoid touching the mask while using it; if you need to, clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it is damp and do not re-use single-use masks.
To remove the mask: remove it from behind (do not touch the front of the mask); discard immediately in a closed bin; clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
