    Here is a chart with equivalents for similar standards. For the most part it is the same as the N95 masks hospital staff caring for Covid patients use here so you are good to go.
    We have a P95 standard that is the same filtration but hesitant to oil mist in the air. I suspect you have a similar standard and they would protect you from Covid too if you happen to have them.

    Spellcheck changed what I wrote to "hesitant to oil mist in the air" in the above post. It should read "resistant to oil mist in the air".

    There is a lot of confusion and consequently misunderstanding about facemasks.

    Official guidance is that facemasks do not protect you against the risk of catching Covid 19. Guidance does state though that if you wear a face covering, it may help to prevent the spread of the virus if you happen to have it.

    In situations where it is mandatory to wear a face covering, a simple handkerchief fixed in such a way that it covers both your mouth and you nose will keep you within the law. To that extent, any facemask which does that job, including the one mentioned in the OP will be sufficient as far as compliance is concerned.

    However, 3M do not claim that their 3M 9320 + FFP2 is effective against coronavirus, but I believe it is fair to say that it would be more effective in helping to prevent it spread than a handkerchief.

    And with that, I'm afraid that I'm turning off the comments for this thread.
