ASTM Level 1 Mask is a 3-ply, medical, disposable face mask created to protect clinicians and patients and anyone who wants more protection from pathogens that may spread by blood or other body fluids. This mask is a top-quality product and meets Health Canada standards. Medical ASTM level 1 Face Mask is designed with a soft, highly breathable material that is hypoallergenic and latex-free. The adjustable nose wire ensures the perfect fit of this face mask. Comfortable extra soft elastic ear loops eliminate pressure to the ears.
Face masks are graded based on how well they protect against different elements. ASTM Level 1 masks provide low barrier protection and should not be used for aerosols, spray or fluid. ASTM Level 2 masks provide moderate barrier protection for low to moderate levels of aerosols, spray and or fluids. ASTM Level 3 masks provide maximum barrier protection and are used for high risk of fluid, spray or aerosol exposure. The higher the grade, the more protection your mask will offer. You should choose the ASTM Level 1 Masks only if maximum protection is not one of your priorities.

Wearing a medical face mask will help prevent the spread of infection and prevent the individual from contracting any airborne infectious germs. When someone coughs, talks, or sneezes they could be releasing germs into the air that may infect others nearby. Face masks are part of an infection control strategy to eliminate cross-contamination and the spread of viruses. Wearing a mask will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to protect yourself and others around you who may be at higher risk (elders or people with compromised immune systems).
As offices and workplaces begin to re-open, many people will need to be wearing medical masks to protect themselves from COVID-19. Providing your employees with the equipment they need can prevent the spread of the virus in your workplace along with avoiding legal problems.
Most workplaces currently require employees and customers to wear protective medical masks while in the facility. The CDC recommends that people who are using public transportation or meeting with people who do not live in the same household, should be wearing masks due to COVID-19.

Face Masks should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save lives. The use of the 3-ply ASTM Level 1 mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection against COVID-19.
You should not reuse disposable ASTM Mask Level 1 as per CDC and WHO.
N95 is a particulate respirator approved By NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) and it filters at least 95% of airborne particles, whereas ASTM level 1 face mask does not need NIOSH approval and it’s not a respirator which needs fit testing. Moreover N95 are designed to provide a good seal whereas level 1 face masks are not designed to seal tightly to the face.
