THE HYGIENIC FACIAL MASK HPS
The coronavirus is transmitted dropwise. Therefore, it is very likely that only when the face is touched, especially the mouth, are we at risk of infection with the virus.
It is understandable that we cannot disinfect our hands every time we touch something. However, on average, we unconsciously touch the face every 2.5 minutes or so. 23 times an hour.
This is why, in the current epidemic, both hand hygiene and face protection are important to try to prevent the self-inflicted dripping infection by touching the face and mouth. We are convinced that the use of a hygienic facemask still makes sense in the current situation. Especially when you go from home to work or shop and such. Can you trust that you will not touch your face, mouth, nose…? Are you sure?
The HPS cotton face hygiene facemask is professionally made and water repellent. It is also washable and can be repeatedly cleaned at home according to the instructions for use. The mask can thus be used for a long time and is not disposable only. Above all, the mask is lightweight, ergonomically shaped and fits well into different face sizes and shapes.
The facemask does not have the function of filtering viruses from the air. Masks with this level of protection (FFP3) are mainly needed by healthcare professionals who have repeated, prolonged contact with people with COVID-19 disease caused by coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The mask is intended for all of us who would like to protect ourselves against the introduction of the virus from infected surfaces and contact with potentially infected persons.
We can improve our level of protection by using a suitable facemask, such as the HPS Hygiene Face Mask, in addition to hygiene and hand disinfection. On social networks, there are various examples of home-made "masks" that may at first glance raise doubts about the quality of their production, since they are obviously not made of appropriate materials. However, it is difficult to talk about the hygienic adequacy of such masks.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE SAFE USE OF THE HPS HYGIENE FACIAL MASK
We recommend that you wear a HPS hygiene facemask every time we leave your home, apartment and go to the emergency room for mail, bank, shop and the like. We wear a facemask all the time until we get home. The purpose of the mask is to prevent the transmission of infection from the surfaces that we touch with the hands.

After installing the facemask, we do not reach into the eye area with our hands and remove it until we get home.
Emergency work that we have outside is performed by taking into account the distance between persons, in accordance with the instructions of the National Institute of Public Health. Outside, we only touch the things we need to do.
