How to Use Your N95 Respirator — Wear Your N95 Properly So It Is Effective!

  • N95s must form a seal to the face to work properly. This is especially important for people at increased risk for severe disease
  • Wearing an N95 may make it harder to breathe. If you have heart or lung problems, talk to your doctor before using an N95.
  • Some N95s may contain latex in the straps. If you have natural rubber latex allergies, see the manufacturers’ website for information about your specific model.
