U.S. Department of Labor Issues Interim Guidance on Face Mask Use

The U.S. Department of Labor has announced interim enforcement guidance permitting the extended use and reuse of disposable N-95 filtering facepiece respirators, as well as the use of expired respirators.

All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
