Recommended Guidance for Extended Use and Limited Reuse of N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators in Healthcare Settings


Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation of influenza-contaminated N95 filtering facepiece respirators. (2018)

“CONCLUSIONS:  These data suggest that FFR decontamination and reuse using UVGI can be effective. Implementation of a UVGI method will require careful consideration of FFR model, material type, and design.”


Effects of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) on N95 Respirator Filtration Performance and Structural Integrity (2015)

“We found that UVGI exposure led to a small increase in particle penetration (up to 1.25%) and had little effect on the flow resistance. UVGI exposure had a more pronounced effect on the strengths of the respirator materials”


Effectiveness of three decontamination treatments against influenza virus applied to filtering facepiece respirators. (2012)

“These findings indicate that, when properly implemented, these methods effectively decontaminate H5N1 on the two FFR models tested and do not drastically affect their filtering function; however, other considerations may influence decisions to reuse FFRs.”


Evaluation of Five Decontamination Methods for Filtering Facepiece Respirators (2009)

“This study evaluated five decontamination methods [ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), ethylene oxide, vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP), microwave oven irradiation, and bleach] “

“Further research is needed before any specific decontamination methods can be recommended.”
