INFOGRAPHIC: Facial Hairstyles and Respirators

The infographic below, first published in 2017 by the CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Healthy, was circulated on social media recently and actually has nothing to do with the new virus.

The NIOSH published the infographic to show workers what types of facial hairstyles affect a tight-sealing mask/respirator.

Facial hair that lies along the sealing area of a respirator, such as beards, sideburns or some moustaches, interferes with respirators that rely on a tight facepiece seal to achieve maximum protection, according to the CDC.
