The FDA has approved an emergency authorization for decontamination/reuse of N95 respirators as a crisis capacity strategy to ensure continued availability. It is critical that the integrity of the N95 respirator, including user seal check be monitored after each decontamination process. This emergency authorization is limited to the current COVID-19 pandemic only. Please be sure to check the CDC and FDA websites for regular updates. Be well, stay safe!
