Agree with not masking - several studies in the past two years have shown that the amount of exhaled particles from PAPRs are no greater than from surgical masks.

Subject: Re: [MCOH-EH] OSHA video and Medical Evaluation Questionnaire    When you staff wear the CAPRS. Do you require them to wear a surgical mask under the CAPR to protect the patient? We do use the CAPR education video from MAXAIR, but no other video    From: MCOH-EH [mailto:mcoh-eh-bounces at mylist.net]On Behalf Of Tara Dockery

Exercise caution when opening attachments or on clicking links from unknown senders. We do not have a video, but do a training. Now we have upped the ante and have all of our staff learn to use the CAPR and they are required to do education and demonstrate competency with the CAPR, however only a certain amount of our staff was fit tested for the N95’s since we have the CAPR’s and our policy says to choose them first.  With the Coronavirus Vaccines being distributed our team that does fit testing does not have time to fit test the others yet, so we are continuing to use CAPR’s here instead of the N95’s until we can round up a large fit testing clinic again    Tara Dockery Ocean Beach Hospital       From: MCOH-EH [mailto:mcoh-eh-bounces at mylist.net]On Behalf Of Deanna Prater

Subject: [MCOH-EH] OSHA video and Medical Evaluation Questionnaire     For those in a hospital or clinic setting, do you require that ALL of your new hires watch a OSHA respirator/TB video?  I'm trying to figure out if it is a requirement.  Also, do you have your employees complete an OSHA Respirator Medical Evaluation Questionnaire?  If yes, I was wondering if this is something you have ALL employees fill out, or just those that are likely to wear a respirator.
