Hi Steby. Most standard surgical face masks are not able to filter out small fine particles, so the best mask to use for the haze would be an N95 mask.

Hi @Steby great question! Completely agree with Dr @trinlyovarin there, surgical masks do not provide any function other than being an accessory in the context of the haze, as smoke particles are too fine for the filters in surgical masks. N95 masks are more useful in this regard but need to be tightly fitted to be effective and can make it difficult to breathe in some patients.
