Label

 
 

The TESTEX label stands for the safety of a tested mask.

testex-community-mask-label
 
 

The Community Mask has been comprehensively tested with regard to harmful substances, comfort and protection. The label provides the population of Switzerland with guidance in the marketplace for textile masks and the safety of protection according to the recommendations of the Swiss National COVID-19 Science Task Force.

What protection does the Community Mask offer?

The Community Mask is a tested textile mask that provides protection against infections. It is washable and reusable.

 
 
maskentyp
 
 

The Community Mask is not an FFP mask or a medical mask. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) have published a document with FAQ in connection with all three types of face masks. The Community Mask falls into the category “Other Masks”, where the “TESTEX Community Mask” label is also listed as a recommendation. It is designed to be worn by the general population in public spaces. It thus provides the protection recommended by the Swiss National COVID-19 Science Task Force, particularly protecting others against infections. The mask is a supplementary protective measure. The general rules of hygiene and conduct of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) must be followed.
