Non-medical product standards for masks.

Posted by richard allan on

The strong consensus on public health advice is that wearing masks in public, when social distancing is not possible, will help to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

While the initial resistance to public mask mandates has  faded into the background there is a growing divergence in advice from public health officials ranging from double masking to adding medical grade filters to wearing a medical masks. And while there are still supply concerns for hospitals many people feel better wearing a product they know has been tested to a specific safety standard. 

With growing concern over new variants, is time to bring clear standards to the non-medical PPE industry so consumers can make more informed decisions with better product information?

At we feel that clear standards for mask material filtration and breathability will help consumers make more informed decisions when purchasing PPE as well as to help producers improve and innovate on their current PPE products.
