Disposable FFP2 masks protect even when reused

FFP2 half masks are classified as “Personal Protective Equipment” according to EU product legislation EN 149. Their purpose is to provide protection against solid particles of a specified size. As these masks are also effective against aerosols that can be carriers of the Sars-Cov-2 pathogen, FFP2 masks are also used here. Unlike solid particles, however, aerosols evaporate over time, which means that multiple use of the FFP2 mask is possible. Multiple use and the correct handling of FFP2 masks that have been used several times have currently been confirmed and described by the University of Münster. Distributors of FFP2 masks may refer to this and advertise their masks as reusable for protection against Sars-Cov-2 pathogens.
