Ensure close fit
An N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles.
Subject to rigorous testing
The ‘N95’ designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles.
The FDA has cleared only certain N95 respirators for use by the general public in public health medical emergencies.
