KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany – Medical-grade masks will be required across Germany starting Monday, but different states have different rules about which ones can be worn and military officials haven’t said if the new requirements will apply on U.S. bases.

Masks that can be worn while shopping, using public transportation, going to the doctor, attending religious services, or in any public venue that is likely to be heavily trafficked, are FFP2 or FFP3 masks, KN95 or N95 masks, and surgical masks, also known as OP masks.

FFP2 or KN95/N95 masks have been mandatory in Bavaria since Jan. 18. Germany's largest state, which is home to USAG Bavaria and USAG Ansbach, does not allow surgical masks.

Surgical masks look similar to lower-grade masks that don't meet the standards for medical-grade face coverings. They must have multiple layers of fabric, a metal strut that sits across the nose, and say on their packaging that they are type II or III and CE rated, Germany’s Federal Institute for Medicines and Medical Devices says on its website.

Type I surgical masks are not medical-grade.

FFP2 or FFP3 masks are said to offer the best protection against the coronavirus. They shield the wearer and those nearby from larger particles found in the mouth and nose, called droplets, and from smaller particles called aerosols, the institute says. KN95 or N95 provide the same protection.

many already stop wearing while walking or working outside. i think many people simply feed up already and don't care what government says. when i drive by i can see a significant percentage of people simply not wearing the mask, even though they keep the mask on their chin for quick cover in case polis is nearby.
