I have a set of surgical masks lying in a box, purchased 3 years ago I think. Never used. Something like : https://www.amazon.in/Certified-Protective-Bact...

Can I use them Or are they expired?

If its packed and stored properly without any dirt or moisture in it , its good to go.

Santa claus forgot it for so long that even the lockdown is lifted and now remember.

Not hoarding, it was a box purchased about 3 years ago to prevent from dust and pollution. Who knew 3 years ago that Corona will come.

I heard that masks lose their filtering power even after keeping at a place. I forgot that research name.
