STSU1 – 2020

Issue Date:

Target Audience:
All industry

Key Issues:
Quality of KN95 face masks and lack of compliance with European standards

Introduction

A substantial number of face masks, claiming to be of KN95 standards, provide an inadequate level of protection and are likely to be poor quality products accompanied by fake or fraudulent paperwork. These face masks may also be known as filtering facepiece respirators.

Face mask

KN95 is a performance rating under the Chinese standard GB2626:2006, the requirements of which are broadly the same as the European standard BSEN149:2001+A1:2009 for FFP2 facemasks. However, there is no independent certification or assurance of their quality and products manufactured to KN95 rating are declared as compliant by the manufacturer. 

Personal protective equipment (PPE) cannot be sold or supplied as PPE unless it is CE marked. The only exception is for PPE that is organised by the UK Government for use by NHS or other healthcare workers where assessments have been undertaken by HSE as the Market Surveillance Authority. 

Action required

KN95 must not be used as PPE at work unless their supply has been agreed by HSE as the Market Surveillance Authority.

Masks that are not CE marked and cannot be shown to be compliant must be removed from supply immediately. If these masks have not been through the necessary safety assessments, their effectiveness in controlling risks to health cannot be assured for anyone buying or using them. They are unlikely to provide the protection expected or required.

For those that are CE marked, suppliers must be able to demonstrate how they know the documentation and CE marking is genuine, supported by Notified Body documentation showing compliance with the essential health and safety requirements as required by the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations (EU) 2016/425.

Can an N95 face mask protect you from catching the new coronavirus?

By Jessica Hamzelou

A man wears a mask near Wuhan, China

Face masks are reportedly selling out in cities across Asia as concerns over the spread of a deadly new coronavirus grow. China’s National Health Commission has deployed masks to healthcare workers responding to the outbreak, and millions of masks have been sent to residents of Wuhan, according to reports. But will these masks stop people from catching the virus?

Coronavirus facts: Listen to our podcast about the new coronavirus outbreak

We know the coronavirus is airborne, and that it can be transmitted between people. Researchers believe that the virus may have made the jump from animals to people via the inhalation of airborne particles in a seafood market that sold live wild animals. So it makes sense to cover your nose and mouth.

There are two main types of face masks that are being used to do that. One is a standard surgical mask – the kind worn by surgeons during operations. These masks are designed to block liquid droplets, and might lower the chance of catching the virus from another person.

But these masks don’t offer full protection against airborne viruses. For a start, they don’t fully seal off the nose and mouth – particles can still get in. And very small particles can simply pass through the material of the mask. These masks also leave the wearer’s eyes exposed – and there’s a chance the virus can infect that way. “They might help, but it’s not clear they give you total protection,” says Mark Woolhouse at the University of Edinburgh, UK.

One-use masks

The World Health Organization recommends that all healthcare workers treating people with the virus wear these surgical masks, along with gloves, goggles and gowns. Surgical masks are thought to be more effective in a clinical setting because they are accompanied by other protective equipment and stringent hygiene practices. The masks are also frequently replaced – surgical masks are not designed to be used more than once.

N95 respirators offer more protection. Such devices are designed to prevent 95 per cent of small particles from entering the nose and mouth area. But they only work if they fit properly, and aren’t suitable for children or people with facial hair.

N95 respirators can also make it more difficult for a person to breathe, so could be dangerous for someone showing symptoms of infection of the new coronavirus, which include coughing and shortness of breath.

Avoid large gatherings

There are other precautions people in China can take to avoid catching the virus. Local authorities are advising residents to avoid large public gatherings, for example. The Lunar New Year holiday has been prolonged to keep people off work and out of school. And practising good hand hygiene can help.

For most people outside China who haven’t been to one of the affected regions, the risk of catching the virus remains low for now. Health authorities are cautioning against travelling to the affected region, and it always makes sense to practice good hand hygiene.

If you are worried about your symptoms, and think you may have the virus, call for medical advice before visiting a hospital and potentially spreading the infection, suggests Robin Thompson at the University of Oxford.

Next to the Spanish flu of 1918, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been one of the biggest medical scares in all of American history. As a country, we need to do everything we can to combat the spread of this virus.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) strongly recommend that people wear face masks to cover their mouths and noses while they’re out and about at the grocery store or any other public area.

A good mask won’t stop you from getting the virus, but it will stop you from contributing to the germ pool, which is huge in getting the nation back to “normal,” or as close to normal as possible at any rate.

You may be getting a lot of mixed messages about what’s safe, and while I am not a medical professional, I spoke with a respiratory therapist to get the lowdown on what’s best in mask wear.

Take a look at what the medical community and the CDC is recommending when it comes to wearing masks. And don’t forget to wash your hands regularly and sanitize, sanitize, sanitize! 

“If you cough or sneeze, the mask can catch those respiratory droplets so they don’t land on other people or surfaces. It is going to protect your neighbor.”
– Dr. Daniel Griffin, Columbia University

What Are the Different Types of Face Masks?

The CDC and WHO approve of basic and surgical face masks for public use. These type of masks are specially designed to prevent you from spreading any illness you may have.

The different types of face masks include:

  • Basic cloth face mask
  • Surgical face mask
  • N95 respirator
  • Filtering facepiece respirator
  • P100 respirator/gas mask
  • Self-contained breathing apparatus
  • Full face respirator
  • Full length face shield
  • KN95 respirator
cloth face mask

Basic Cloth Face Mask

This is your standard, everyday version of a face mask. It’s also the version recommended for public use in the midst of COVID-19. You can wear this type of face mask while going to the grocery store, gas station, or any other open public place.

surgical face mask

Surgical Face Mask

An FDA-approved surgical mask is made from a thin, disposable material. Medical professionals who are currently operating drive-thru testing for COVID-19 are wearing a version of this face mask that covers not just their nose and mouth, but also their eyes, cheeks, and forehead. You’ll also see this type of mask worn in hospitals by doctors and respiratory therapists.

N95 Respirator

N95 Respirator

You won’t find N65 Respirators worn by the general public. This type of face mask is critical for health care workers and medical first responders. Please don’t use/purchase this type of mask if you are not working directly with patients. Supplies are scarce right now, and these masks need to be reserved for those who really need them. 

filtering facepiece respirator

Filtering Facepiece Respirator

Like surgical masks, this type of face mask is disposable. It’s not commonly used to stop the spread of airborne illnesses, but rather is worn to decrease exposure to particles that come from wood dust, animal dander, and pollen. Those with allergies might consider using this type of face mask during the pandemic.

p100 respirator/gas mask

P100 Respirator/Gas Mask

A P100 respirator isn’t commonly associated with healthcare. It’s instead worn by painters, woodworkers, and anyone who may be in contact with lead, asbestos, or chemicals. You shouldn’t wear this type of mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

self-contained breathing apparatus

Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

Firefighters commonly wear this type of face mask so they can breathe clean air in dangerous situations. There’s absolutely no need to wear this type of face mask during the spread of COVID-19. If you do purchase one, you’re taking it away from a firefighter or rescue worker that may actually need it.

full face respirator

Full Face Respirator

Do you have a hard time breathing in a cloth or surgical mask? A full face respirator, which is typically used for home improvement projects, may be a good choice for you. This type of mask, however, should be reserved for those who already have breathing problems or respiratory issues.

full length face shield

Full Length Face Shield

This is a mask that’s a flimsier, plastic version of the glass ones you see worn by welders. It covers the entire face from forehead to chin and secures with a cushioned headband. For the most part, a full length face shield isn’t ideal during the COVID-19 crisis as it’s tough to breathe in over time.

KN95 Respirator

KN95 Respirator

KN95 masks are very similar to N95 masks. Both capture about 95% of tiny particles in the air. The biggest difference is that N95 masks are able to capture larger particles.

This video breaks down the different types of face masks, so you can find the right one for you!

What Type of Face Mask is Best for COVID-19?

The general consensus in the medical community is that cotton face masks are the best choice for stopping the spread of COVID-19.  This is because cotton filters out a higher percentage of particles than most other materials. Plus, cotton fibers are soft, cool, and breathable, which makes for a more comfortable fit.

Here are a few cotton face masks available at Quality Logo Products®

The CDC offers the following guidelines for wearing face masks:

  • Fits snuggly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Secures with ties or ear loops
  • Includes multiple layers of fabric
  • Allows for breathing without restriction
  • Able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

Cotton checks off all those boxes. It’s easy to clean and comfortable to wear, while at the same time offering the most protection. You’re also not going to be taking away from any medical professionals, rescue teams, or people with breathing issues if you opt for this type of mask.


Some surgical masks are not sealing tightly to the face, increasing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 particles. Fix the Mask, an organization started by ex-Apple engineers, is dedicated to solving the problem with new and improved mask designs.

How to Make a Face Mask

You can create a makeshift face mask using a bandana, spare fabric, or bed sheets. It’s not as effective as a real face mask, but it’s better than nothing if shortages are preventing you from getting a proper one.

Amanda Perna of Project Runway spoke with Good Housekeeping and offered this DIY face mask project when you’re in a pinch.

What You’ll Need

how to make a face mask from a bandana

Here’s how to easily make a face mask with a bandana:

  • Step One: Lay out a bandana or spare piece of fabric completely flat on a table.
  • Step Two: Place a flat coffee filter in the center of the fabric.
  • Step Three: Fold the fabric from the top and bottom toward the center over the coffee filter.
  • Step Four: Place your rubber bands, hair ties, strings, or shoelaces around each end of the folded fabric. Do not tie them around the fabric.
  • Step Five: Tuck each fabric piece into each other and pull your rubber bands or strings tightly.
  • Step Six: Slip the rubber bands or strings over your ears. You now have a completed face mask!

The Final Look

You can always tie the bandana or fabric as is around the back of your head without the addition of the hair ties and coffee filter. However, they help keep this makeshift face mask more securely in place.

How to Make a Face Mask Out of a T-Shirt

Aside from bandanas and coffee filters, you can also use an old t-shirt to create a DIY face mask. It’s a relatively easy project to do and great when you can’t get your hands on a face mask easily.

What You’ll Need

how to make a face mask from a t-shirt

Here’s how to make a face mask from an old t-shirt:

  • Step One: Measure a 15″ x 15″ square on your t-shirt and cut it out with scissors.
  • Step Two: Take one square from the cut fabric and bring it up diagonally to make a triangle.
  • Step Three: Fold the top of the triangle down twice. The first time you’ll bring it to the middle. The second time you’ll bring it all the way to the bottom.
  • Step Four: Secure a hair tie or rubber band around either end of the t-shirt fabric. Do not tie them around the fabric.
  • Step Five: Roll the fabric into the hair tie or rubber band on each side so it stays nice and tight.
  • Step Six: Secure the mask onto your face and stay safe

This entire process is quick and super easy to do! Plus, you’re finding a new use for your old t-shirts at the same time.

How Do I Keep My Face Mask From Slipping Off?

If you’re having serious face mask problems, there are easy hacks to keep it from slipping off. Try any of the following:

  1. Tie knots in the ear loops at the back without criss-crossing the straps.
  2. Buy an ear saver, which is a small hair accessory that is worn on the back of the head.
  3. Stick a bandage on the bridge of your nose on top of the mask.
  4. Hold the ear loops with a hair clip on the side of your head.

It also isn’t a bad idea to invest in face mask accessories. You can find lanyards, chains, headbands, and more that are specifically designed for carrying around your mask.

These are just some ways to make your face mask more comfortable to wear throughout the day. We’re all still getting used to having one on us at all times, so any little thing you can do to make it less noticeable or bothersome is worth the cost.

Do Face Masks Provide Protection From COVID-19?

do face masks provide protection from covid-19

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), face masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. That is why it’s important for us to wear some kind of mask in public settings and at social gatherings. We are protecting our neighbors from also acquiring the virus.

For the foreseeable future, face masks are part of the “new normal.” It’s worth choosing a face mask that you’re comfortable wearing all day, whether you’re at work, exercising, or hanging out with friends and family.

Final Thoughts

It’s a scary time out there, but face masks are a small way you can make a difference. You’re helping prevent the virus from spreading, which is crucial in getting the situation under control. If you’re a business, you can also use face masks as company promotional items. Simply print your name and logo on the front, and you’ve got yourself a walking ad!

Masks aren’t necessarily the height of fashion, but they are the height of protection during the COVID-19 pandemic. Get one while you can and stay safe out there!
