Health Care Risk Advisor: May 2020

On Apr. 24, 2020, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued interim enforcement guidance on reusing disposable N95 filtering facepiece respirators (N95 FFRs) that have been decontaminated.

The guidance applies to workplaces where workers need respirators to protect against exposure to infectious agents that could be inhaled into the respiratory system, including during care of patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 and other activities that could result in respiratory exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the coronavirus.
