Surgical Face Masks For Sale
If you’ve been paying attention to the news at all for the past couple of months, you’ve probably heard about the coronavirus outbreak in china. First things first, we here at Blueworks think that you should not panic. There have only been 12 documented cases of the coronavirus here in the u.S., and comparatively, somewhere between 10,000 and 25,000 people have died of the much more common flue since October. So the best thing you can do is keep calm, get your flu shot, and, wash your hands. Despite the relatively low risk of coronavirus in the u.S., pharmacies and online retailers like Amazon have been selling out of these surgical masks and n95 respirators like this one. These are called n95, which means that they’re government-certified to block 95% of small airborne particles. They do so via an activated carbon layer and a polypropylene filter that blocks out particulate as small as .3 microns. For comparison, a human strand of hair is about 75 microns in size. We liked this model from 3m last year because of its pretty sturdy straps compared to some of the ones we tested, its m nose bridge, which locks tightly onto your face, as well as this thing here, which is called an exhalation valve. When you’re breathing out, your face can get pretty hot, and this sort of keeps you cool. These are surgical masks. You’ve seen these on doctors, in hospitals, maybe you’ve seen a nail technician wearing one or you’ve seen them on the subway. Basically, they’re made out of cheap latex, and they secure around your face with elastic bands or just kind of like cheap plastic ties like these ones. But none of these masks are airtight.

So that means that there is room for airborne pathogens to sort of sneak in through the side. The best these can offer is a physical barrier between you and any sort of spritz or splash that may come your way. So what will these protect you against?
Viruses, these are a no for surgical masks and a yes for n95 respirators. Viruses are teeny, tiny, and they travel on water vapor that can pretty easily sneak in through the sides of the mask. Also, if you are going to wear one of these and you prefer to have that barrier anyway, make sure to take the mask off by the straps. A lot of people have a tendency to take the mask off by the front, and let’s say you touched a subway pole or you touched someone who was swarming with the flu.
Now there’s only this thin latex barrier between your mouth and someone else’s illness. But let’s say you’re sick and you can’t stay home and you need to get to the doctor. It should hold in your coughs and your sneezes, but as I said, it doesn’t seal tightly to your face. So if someone unlucky is sitting next to you on the subway when you sneeze, they could get a small sprinkling.

Once you exhale enough humid air, these can get sort of damp, making them more susceptible to picking up a virus. These are n95s. These will definitely protect you from a virus. These are only ever going to work correctly if they’re properly fitted to your face. So if you have a beard, you’re out of luck. That said, they’re hot, they’re uncomfortable, they’re difficult to breathe through, so you probably don’t wanna wear one of these unless you’re in the same room as an infected person. Oop, pollen, pollen is also a no for surgical masks. And it is a definite yes for n95 respirators. Pollen can sneak in through the sides of the mask. So the best it can do is provide a barrier for a little while. At 10 microns, pollen is relatively pretty big. So n95 should have no problem filtering them out of your respiratory system. Mold, this is another no for surgical masks.
