Levels of Mask Protection


The American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) is an international standard organization that develops and publishes voluntary census standards for a wide range of materials and products, including masks used in healthcare.

Level 1 masks have the lowest barrier of protection, and Level 3 masks have the highest barrier of protection.

A face mask is considered contaminated once it has been used and should be discarded immediately.

Using an N95 Mask


An N95 mask protects the person wearing it as well as those around them. An N95 mask is used when the infection is transmissible through the air.

Staff will be FIT tested for an N95 mask every two years.

A User Seal Check must be conducted every time an N95 mask is worn. To User Check a respirator, the wearer should forcefully inhale and exhale several times. The respirator should collapse slightly upon inhaling and expand upon exhaling. The wearer should not feel any air leaking between their face and the respirator. This is the sign of a good facial fit and a successful User Seal Check.

If the respirator does not collapse or expand OR air is leaking between the wearer’s face and the respirator, then it is NOT a good facial fil. The wearer should adjust the respirator until the leakage is corrected and a successful User Seal Check occurs.

*It is important to note the respirator must be User Seal Checked each time that it is donned.
