Can I wear a beard or moustache when using a dust mask, rubber half-mask or full-face respirator?


Last Update 2 years ago

There should be no facial hair under the face seal of the respirator when it is worn in the correct position. 

Guidance from the US Government Centre for Disease Control (CDC) is shown below on regarding facial hair and half mask type respirators.
