The advantage of which is easier breathing half the time : inhalations are through the filter medium, exhalations through the valve.

The Flip Mask is designed and manufactured to be worn the normal way if you're well and don't want to get sick, or inside-out if you're ill and don't want to spread it around.

Appropriate decaling is applied. Optional sound effects.

       Well, keep your head down, or the Truth Police will be round to drag you off to an isolation camp ...

       You've got to ask yourself a question, officer: "do I feel cuddly?" Well, do ya punk?

       ... which is why surgeons wear them; to keep the bugs in, not out.   

       In HAZMAT environments, respirators - including eye protection- are needed, but more important (and very rarely shown) is the external decontamination procedure prior to removal. Correct protocols for safe respirator use are widely available.
