Just in, 2/10/21 New CDC guidance on double masking. The benefits are clear: In the CDC study, a medical procedure mask alone blocked 42% of particles from a simulated cough, while a cloth mask alone blocked 44%. A cloth mask covering a medical procedure mask blocked 92.5% of the cough particles. And don't layer another mask on top of a KN95, either. That mask should be used alone, the CDC says.https://www.npr.org/sections/coro...ronavirus?
ALERT, Office Depot may be sending out fakes. See image below, OD on right, not the same as pictured on OD and other sites. BonaFidesmasks certified dealer on left. Powecon mentions OD as selling fakes. Office Depot is no longer on Powecom's "Fraudulent Website" webpage. http://www.powecom.com/Fraudulent_Websites.html
Not sure about the picture that is posted, but the masks that we received through another source are like the ones on the right and the packaging authenticity scratch off number passed the Powecom verification website. Bonafidemasks also provides a link to that "anti-fake check," so, either the right hand masks are also genuine, or the Powecom verification process doesn't work.
Powecom packaging has a scratch off verification number. You can go to http://www.powecom.com/verification.html and input the number that is revealed and the website will show whether they made that package or not.
98% efficiency when worn properly based on CDC testing:
Authorized by the FDA
These are on the list of non-NIOSH-approved respirator models manufactured in China that are authorized by this Umbrella EUA for emergency use during the COVID-19 public health emergency. https://www.fda.gov/medical-devic...#appendixa
Consumers should generally avoid shopping for such masks on Amazon and eBay, experts say. Instead, people should refer first to the CDC's list of N95 alternatives that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves for use in health care settings and try to buy them directly from the manufacturer.
