According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), while all masks and respirators provide some level of protection, properly fitting respirators, including N95 respirators, provide the highest level of protection from COVID-19.If worn properly, N95 respirators have better filtration than cloth or procedural masks. An N95 respirator will be less effective if it fits poorly, if you wear it improperly, or take it off frequently.Wearing a highly protective mask or respirator may be most important for certain higher risk situations, or by some people at increased risk for severe disease.
