A short response to a very closely related question should appear on the ACOEM code question & answer page relatively soon. (Probably <7 days).

Now that we are in the era of vaccinating for Covid-19, has ACOEM updated or planning to update their recommendations for spirometry testing?

What is the consensus for spirometry testing if medical staff have received the recommended vaccine (or series) and an N95 and face shield is worn during testing? 

Thanks for your comments.
