PortugalThat’s the reason why in the contention phase we could work with one or two surgical masks (depending on the place- if it was a place with low probability of having somebody with the disease, we use one mask- if there was a place with more probability of having more infected, then we should wear two masks). In this situation, depending on the places you should wear FFP2 masks already.
When you enter the mitigation phase, then you must consider everybody as a potential infected person. So, you must wear a FFP2 mask.
Afterwards, when the mitigation phase is over you still have a high probability of dealing with someone infected, so you still have to maintain the high level of protection. Then when everything is coming to normal, we probably will need to adapt some procedures on our offices, but I believe FFP2 masks will not be needed.
