What is a KN95 Protective Face Mask?

KN95 protective masks provide protection against infected droplets, airborne and liquid transmitted diseases. These filtering masks are tested to CE standards and meet the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the event of outbreaks of SARS, MERS, Avian Flu, and COVID-19, the CDC recommends their use.

These hygiene respirators are half-masks that cover the nose and mouth. The mask is kept in place by two elastic headbands, and also have a small metal section that sits across the bridge of the nose when in use.
