Re: Face masks, where to buy?

Our local Spar has HN95 masks, which I think are a step down from standard N95, the box says equivalent to FFP2. These are expensive, though - CHF 69 for a box of 10.

But for those who need something more than hygiene masks, perhaps an option.

ETA:

I see on the Spar website that from 4 May they will also offer hygiene masks at 0.65 each in a box of 50 - that's CHF 32.50. Limit two per customer.

Spar is also able to offer large quantities (from 4000) to businesses needing them, such as hairdressers. Contact details on the website.

Just to be clear, the Chinese standard for the masks is KN95 which is the same as FFP2 and N95. Since everything we are seeing for sale in CH at the moment is coming from China, the better quality masks (not the folded ones you can buy as well) will be labelled KN95. See 3M table on the link for full comparison.

"Compare N95 v KN95 v FFP2 face masks

In summary, they are basically all the same. They stop 95% of particles >0.3 microns in size. The N95 is the USA Code, KN95 is China code, KF94 is Korea code and FFP2 is the EU code, this includes the UK.

KN95, KF94 and FFP2 face masks are N95 face mask alternatives & N95 equivalents. They are all the same."
