Will my face covering protect me from hazardous chemicals or biological materials?

Added on |

No, a cloth face covering is intended to provide community protection and is not intended to provide the wearer respiratory protection from exposure to chemicals, biologicals, or other airborne hazards. Continue to perform work activities using appropriate safety controls such as chemical fume hoods, biosafety cabinets, and personal protective equipment and continue to wear a face covering while in Stanford buildings.
