FFP Face Masks
With more transmissible variants of COVID-19 circulating amongst the community, many experts are now stressing the importance of using high quality face masks when at all possible. FFP2 and FFP3 face masks offer a significant upgrade when compared to fabric and surgical masks, because they not only protect those in the vicinity of the wearer, but also the wearer themselves. FFP masks, when worn correctly, will create a facial seal, filtering both the inflow and outflow of air. Depending on the mask's rating they can also offer a degree of protection against aerosols or smaller droplets. Such masks as so effective, that Germany has recently followed Austria in making it compulsory to wear FFP face masks on public transport and in shops.
