Medical standard, medically-trusted KN95 reusable, washable masks that are suitable for care home staff, health care facilities or personal assistants and carers who require protection from Corona virus / Covid-19 whilst working with clients – to provide assurance to both the key worker and the client they care for.
Due to the unprecedented changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the government has allowed flexible use of Direct Payments and Continuing Healthcare budgets – and this includes the ability for you to buy PPE for any assistants or staff you may require. Please check with your local guidance to see if this applies to you and your Direct Payment or Continuing Healthcare budget.
Can I use my direct payment to buy PPE for PAs I employ?
If your existing direct payment contains funding to purchase PPE for your PA, you should continue to use that funding to purchase PPE. If you, or your PA, cannot obtain PPE in this way, or your direct payment is not set up to fund PPE, you should ask for assistance from the local authority or CCG that provides your direct payment who should help you to get the PPE you require.
The classic KN95 mask is suitable for those whom want to protect their nose and mouth from airborne spray drift from sneezes, and desire a respiratory filter to remove particles, viruses and microbes from the air.
These 4-ply, FFP2-standard protective face masks can block out and filtrate 95% of all particulates greater than 0.3 microns, to provide ultimate protection against viruses such as Covid-19.
Aerosol filtration percentage: Not less than 94%.
Internal leak rate: Maximum 8%.
This mask offers protection in various areas such as the glass industry, foundry, construction, pharmaceutical industry and agriculture. It effectively stops powdered chemicals. This mask can also serve as protection against influenza viruses such as avian influenza or severe acute respiratory syndrome associated with the coronavirus (SARS), as well as against the bacteria of pneumonic plague and tuberculosis. Manufacturers use white or blue elastic bands to identify this type.
The KN95 mask benefits from being reusable and washable – or you can buy multiples and simply use them in rotation – leaving a 72 hour period between uses, for particles on the mask to deactivate.
