Do Your Know The Difference Between A Level 1 Face Mask And A N95 Face Mask?

Do you know the difference between a level 1 face mask and an N95 face mask? Level 1 face masks are general-use face masks that are rated for low moisture exposure. They provide more breathability but have a lower level of protection. They also have a looser fit that doesn't form a seal around the wearer's mouth and nose and doesn't filter or block small particles in the air. N95 masks are a respiratory protective device that fits snuggly and is more efficient at filtering airborne particles. An N95 mask's edges are "fit-tested," ensuring that a seal forms around your mouth and nose. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) does not recommend that the general public use N95 masks; these are still considered critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for our healthcare workers and other medical professionals.
