3M has increased production at manufacturing facilities around the world, including those that make respirators, to help meet demand for supplies that help protect people. We are supporting the public health and government response to the outbreak and are working with governments, medical officials, customers and distributors around the world to help get supplies where they are needed most.
At this time the World Health Organization (WHO) has not made any recommendations for personal protective equipment (PPE) use, including respirators, by the general public.
Please note that 3M is not selling its Personal Protective Equipment directly to end-users.
Sources of supply are authorized retailers, DIY stores as well as e-commerce platforms.
