Coronavirus & Face Mask: The Ministry. Health clarifies what constitutes and what does not, mask for COVID-19 [Circular]

The Circular of the Secretary General of Public Health, in the most formal way, includes detailed information on the issue of masks and clarifies what constitutes and what does not, mask for COVID-1…….

"The face shields (faceshields), whereas they offer a lower degree of protection from the mask, with regard to the prevention of droplet transmission, do not equate to a mask and their use is made in addition to the masks protection. If face shields are to be used, Proper design covering the sides of the face and under the chin as well as adequate cleaning and disinfection must be ensured.

Shields, partially covering the face or only the mouth and nose (mouthshields) it must to be excluded because they do not offer protection to either the user or another person and they are not considered to be a mask protection. "

This is clarified in the most official way by a Circular of the Secretary General of Public Health, unraveling what we see around us every day [unfortunately even in grocery stores, cafes and restaurants] with face shields, let alone those that only partially cover the face, are not considered a protective mask.

The Circular was issued on 22 October and, with regard to Local Government, is sent to regions (at the Offices of the Governors and the General Directorates of Public Health and Social Welfare), as well as to the Decentralized Administrations with the request to be informed all municipalities.

The document includes detailed information on the issue of masks, noting its definition what constitutes face mask, medicine and non-medical, and what can use the public.

Gives, also, five instructions to right use of the mask, stressing that the use of the mask is a complementary measure and does not replace basic protection rules such as physical distance >1,5m, respiratory hygiene (use a tissue for coughing or sneezing), hand hygiene and avoiding touching the face.
