Are there any colors or patterns you should not wear?

Allowed is what pleases. BUT: If you wear a mask, it will always look a bit intimidating. That’s why we advise against certain prints. Protective masks with grimaces, clown or horror motifs are a very bad choice and simply inappropriate. It may be funny and cool at first, but it will look very threatening to the people around you (especially children). Better save the horror fun for Halloween.

No! A breathing mask does not protect a healthy person from infection with the Corona virus. But people who carry it protect others from infection with SARS-CoV-2 by wearing a mouth guard.

What should I keep in mind when wearing a protective mask?

  • Wash your mask regularly at 60 degrees in the washing machine.
  • The mask should fit snugly and always completely cover the nose and mouth.
  • Wearing a mask does not replace regular hand washing and a safety distance of at least 1.5 meters.
