Guidance for Respirator Fit Testing During COVID-19

Guidance for Respirator Fit Testing During COVID-19

The world is opening back up, but the Coronavirus is still present. Do you need guidance for Respirator Fit Testing? Living in a COVID-19 world looks different now. Respirator Fit Testing is a way to provide peace of mind. The danger of contracting the virus has not changed. When a person sneezes, they send 100,000 bacteria and viruses into the air at 100 mph. Jobs in the dental industry and medical field are at high risk of exposure. Masks help lessen the risk of exposure for the patient and worker if sealed correctly. The only way to test your employees’ masks is to do a Respirator Fit Test.

Providing Peace of Mind

Leaving the house for work or daily tasks has become very unsettling for most people. Respirator Fit Testing can provide safety and peace of mind for not only your staff, but also your patients. The test will determine if it is a positive or negative seal around the face. A positive ensures the mask is tightly secured around the face, lessening the risk of exposure.
