Abstract

Given supply constraints of N95s in the US during the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare facilities have turned to extended use protocols and new sources of N95s. Because fit testing every employee for every new mask is not feasible, our Infection Prevention Department developed a method for rapid deployment of new N95s.

Keywords: N95s; infection prevention; pandemic; rapid deployment.
