I had a quick question concerning the face mask rule that comes into effect as of the 1st of June.
The rule states that one has to wear a face covering or simply put ‘mondkapje’ that covers the mouth and nose of one’s face, and ideally that mask or covering should be ‘non-medical.’
However, what if I have a KN95 mask that I would like to wear or even a FFP3 mask that I have acquired legitimately. Can I wear those or is the ‘non-medical’ more than a just a recommendation?
Also, if it is not possible to wear KN95, FFP2 or FFP3 masks, then could I hypothetically wear a half-face respisrator, commonly referred to as a half-face gas mask, with filters? I mean those are technically non-medical despite technically meeting the same standards as a FFP2 and FFP3 non-reusable face mask.
Thank you all in advance for your time and responses. I would be very grateful for some clarification on these questions as I tried really hard finding some answers myself, but could not find any...

Perhaps you have to get accustomed to dutch customs of ´´we dont give a damn´ or nicely : ´gedogen´. In actuel everyday practice noone will even know how to differentiate between all those types. It was ordered that way to save the precious as in sort supply medical masks for the medicals.
However wearing a gasmask will simply make you look utterly silly and some frightened people may assume you are a dreaded terrorist. Do you want that?
Yes, I know some people like to find the extremes and think thats oso funny. It is not. There are enough websites catering for such people-leave it there.
