Putting on a face mask has become part of our routine. It’s one of the preventive measures, along with regular handwashing and social distancing, that people worldwide have adopted to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

And while face masks are not hard to get your hands on these days, thanks to a whole raft of mask manufacturers and start-up brands here in Hong Kong, it's still important to choose the right one for you, whether it's the functionality or appearance.

In today’s market, regulations such as ASTM F2100, EN 14683, and YY 0469 are used to determine the quality and safety of medical face masks.
