How to choose the best N95 mask for kids

by Flying Saints Creative Agency on June 23, 2021

There has been a lot of discussion during the pandemic on whether kids should wear face masks or not. However, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the answer is a resounding yes. N95 masks for kids, especially if they step out of their bubble, will help slow the spread of COVID-19 in kids over two years of age.

Having said that, kids should wear a mask that specifically meets the below guidelines.        

Provides highest protection and viral filtration efficiency

As a parent, you want the highest protection N95 mask for your kids, preferably one with a high viral filtration efficiency. Nirvana Being’s Airific range of masks is made with a nanofiber filter in the middle layer, tested (by Nelson Laboratories USA) to provide >96% filtration efficiency against viruses, bacteria and particulate matter. The masks are also backed by certifications and test reports from reputed labs across the World, in India, Europe and the USA. Furthermore, Airific is the first made in India reusable N95 mask to be certified by CE (CWA 17553:2020) as a community mask.

Fits snugly but comfortably against the side of the face

An uncomfortable or tight fit can make it harder for kids to access air and a loose fit won't provide much protection. You should opt for a mask brand such as Airific by Nirvana Being that offers Covid masks for kids in multiple sizes to ensure a comfortable yet snug fit for your child.  

Comes in exciting designs

With morbidity and negativity surrounding us, face coverings often have a very negative connotation to them- more so for children. Therefore, Nirvana Being has partnered with Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Barbie for fun and attractive Airific N95 masks for kids to get them excited about wearing their masks. As a parent if you are worried about your child’s safety, simply go for the Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Barbie range; we are positive your child will never want to remove his or her mask!

Allows for breathing without any restriction

Some kids may not like the idea of wearing an N95 mask, especially if it is uncomfortable and difficult to breathe in. Children are hyperactive by nature and like to run around and play which is why you need to be cautious about breathability while buying N95 masks for kids. Furthermore, your child would not need to double mask if he or she is wearing a high protection N95 mask. Double masking puts pressure on organs including the heart which makes it more difficult to breathe well. Therefore, it is not recommended in cities where the temperature exceeds 30 degree Celsius.

To conclude, when it comes to your little one, wanting to protect them comes first. And when N95 masks come in designs of their favourite Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Barbie characters, it sure is fun to dress them up!
