The mask has been tested and verified to be effective at filtering 95% of airborne contaminants down to .3 microns in size, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, including public masking recommendations published by CDC and local governments in response to COVID-19 pandemic.

Products that do not list an explicit NIOSH approval on our website do not carry such an approval and should not be used in OSHA regulated environments without the expressed, written approval of a qualified safety manager or local representative of OSHA. All respiratory and safety equipment, regardless of approval, should not be used without prior medical sign-off by a certified physician.
I am writing a follow up to my previous review. I was wrong and these masks HAVE been approved by the CDC to prevent covid-19! These masks are great, and the company is top notch!
Thanks for following up Kate. We appreciate you taking the time. These were complicated approvals to keep straight to understand BEFORE a global pandemic and CDC/FDA/NIOSH guidelines started changing on an almost daily basis, so we are always happy to help clarify things whenever we can.
