Surgical masks are not intended to replace the need for FDA-cleared surgical masks or FDA- cleared or authorized respirators. Surgical masks are a loose fitting device worn over the user’s nose and mouth. Surgical masks may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets; however, because of the loose fit between the surface of the surgical mask and the user’s face, leakage can occur around the edge of the mask when the user inhales. Therefore, a surgical mask may not provide the user with a reliable level of protection from inhaling smaller airborne particles and is not considered respiratory protection. For this reason, surgical masks are not recommended for use in aerosol generating procedures and any clinical conditions where there is significant risk of infection through inhalation exposure. In such clinical conditions, a filtering facepiece respirator (such as an N95 respirator) with a tight fit is recommended to provide a more reliable level of respiratory protection against pathogenic biologic airborne particulates.
