With the Stay at Home executive order from Mayor Strickland, the public is required to stay at home unless traveling to an essential location, such as a grocery store or pharmacy.
At this time, it is advised that the public mask in some way, while in these settings. N95 masks are not needed. Any surgical mask or even homemade mouth and nose coverings are better than nothing.
The filter just has to say “95” and be from 3M.
95 means it filters out 95% of particles >0.5 microns.
“N’ means it is NOT oil resistant. “P” means its oil resistant.
N95 filters are exhausted, but there’s respirators and P95 filters available.
A respirator mask with a P95 filter will do the same thing as an N95, and oil resistant.
