Surgical Mask, 50-pack
This surgical mask is a loose-fitting, disposable mask that creates a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment.
If worn properly, this mask can help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. This mask may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others.
While this mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a facemask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs or sneezes. Facemasks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the mask and your face.
