Surgical style 3-Ply Face Masks are quality non-woven face masks that are intended to cover the nose and mouth in order to minimise the incidence of cross-infection in surgical, medical, dental, food preparation and other clean or sensitive environments. This pack contains 50 masks.
When someone talks, coughs or sneezes they can release tiny drops into the air that can infect other people. If the infected person wears a facemask, it can reduce the number of germs that the wearer releases, which can protect other people from becoming sick. Disposable masks can be used to prevent harmful airborne substances from entering the body through the nose and mouth and also to prevent pathogens and germs being spread by the wearer.
This can be required in a number of circumstances including:
- In healthcare to protect from germs and infection
- Personal use to prevent spread of infection from yourself and for protection from other people’s germs
- To prevent cross-infection in surgical, medical, dental and food preparation environments
Disposable face masks should be used once and then thrown in the bin. You should also dispose of and replace your mask when they become moist.
