When should or shouldn't I use a P2, N95 or KN95 face mask in Australia?
According to the Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organisation, the people who will benefit the most from use of a face mask are those who are already sick and healthcare workers who have close contact with sick people.
Masks are most effective when used in combination with frequent hand washing or use of an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
You can find out more information on when and how to use masks here on the World Health Organisation's site.
Are P2 masks only good for a single use?
Yes. If you need to use a mask multiple times, most of the sites listed above will sell multi-packs.
Alternatively, you can check out where to bulk buy P2 and N95 masks in the list above if you're in need of multiple masks, say for an essential workplace. 3M also makes mask with replaceable filters.
How long do P2 face masks last?
Generally, a P2 mask works for about 8-10 hours before needing to be replaced as it will become less effective. According to the World Health Organization you should also replace any single-use mask once it gets damp.
