Questions and answers for our valued customers:
Answered by the admin It's best to dispose of the mask after use, as they are single use only. It is possible to reuse them, but there is a risk of infection unless certain procedures are carefully followed. The United States CDC has issued some guidance here but they state that the masks should be reused only in very limited situations.
Q Can I use these masks for Wuhan coronavisus this time? Or as you said only for house improvement?... answer nowAnswered by the admin As stated, the NIOSH Certified Disposable N95 respirator mask can provide some protection against the SARS coronavirus. However, although the Wuhan coronavirus belongs to the same general family of viruses, it is a different virus and what worked for SARS may not be as successful with another coronavirus like Wuhan. If you decide to use an N95 respirator for protection from the Wuhan virus (also called 2019-nCoV), be sure to use one that is NIOSH certified and disposable, and be careful to also take other measures such as the use of hand sanitizers and eye protection. Above all, we would recommend following your doctor's advice on how to protect yourself from the Wuhan virus. Other authoritative information can be found by following the CDC or Health Canada websites (e.g. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html).
