How does the KN95 Mask Work

The KN95 mask fits around the nose perfectly well. You have to confirm the fittings in comparison to your face before you buy it. The better it is while fitting, the more assured you are of protection.

You cannot wear the KN95 for long, not at all. The reason is that the KN95 design is such that it can only be worn comfortably for a continuous period of not more than 30 minutes. Wearing it for more than that may cause breathing difficulties.

It will also get wet due to sweat and dirt, and that is the time that you should be removing it from your face.

You should wear the mask while outside or in public places to protect yourself from COVID-19. Take a lot of caution in such instances and make sure that you finish what you are doing without taking so much time. Get away from there as soon as possible, at least within 30 minutes. Alternatively, have a spare mask at the ready so that you can change.

Ideally, you can put the KN95 respirator to use for one week before you can get rid of it completely. That is the recommended time.
