Summary Information: Facemask

Facemask: A facemask is a single-use, paper-like device that fits over the nose and mouth and provides a loose shield or filter between the user's airway and ambient air contaminants, such as dust and water droplets or sprays that may contain viruses, bacteria or molds. A facemask is also intended to contain the user's own coughs and sneezes from the immediate environment. However, a facemask does not provide absolute protection and containment nor does it block out very small particles.
