CDC Issues Guidance On Decontaminating Filtering Facepiece Respirators

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health issued guidance on decontaminating disposable filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) for reuse during times of contingency and crisis capacity.  CDC does not recommend that FFRs be decontaminated and then reused as standard care but rather as an option that may need to be considered when FFR shortages exist.
