Protective masks – why wear them?
Protective goggles – Wearing these is an extra precaution if you need to go where other people are.
Masks and their wearing will help to reduce the spread of the virus, especially in public places such as shops, pharmacies, medical facilities, public transport, etc.
Masks are generally not necessary for wearing at home and outdoors.
Whatever the mask is, or however effective its filtering capacity, it becomes of little importance if it is not used in conjunction with other preventive measures, in particular avoidance of close contact, regular hand hygiene and staying at home.
There are different types of protection:
Medical TYPEI, TYPE2 and TYPE2R masks
FFP2 and FFP3 respirators
Reusable fabric masks
They all have different purposes and depending on the environment and the need, it makes sense to wear them in different places.
