An N95 with Exhalation Valve: Is it Protective Against Virus?

Description

The use of exhalation valves with N95s can expose the people around you to a virus if you are an asympotamic or presymptomatic carrier.

N95 respirators come in different brands and types. One of the key features is whether they have an exhalation valve. In this video, we focus on the exhalation valves without filters, the most common type in the market. Please contact the manufacturer to learn more about the safety of the specific respirator model you are using.
