Misuse may result in sickness or death

I really didn't feel like shaving yesterday. Then I remembered that I was supposed to be "mask fit tested" and had to be clean shaven. I've been fit tested for a 3M N95 8210 mask.

I find a lot of warning labels amusing. The 3M N95 8210 mask has a warning label which states, "Misuse may result in sickness or death". Maybe it's not that amusing. They think that some Health Care Professionals in Canada got SARS because they weren't using N95 masks properly. One of the students in my class had a relative who worked in a Toronto hospital. He was in the wrong waiting room, at the wrong time, and was infected with SARS.
