Updated guidance for N95 respirator use

N95 respirators will no longer be re-used more than one day. However, clinical staff should continue to extend their use by wearing the same N95 for repeated close encounters with several different patients without removing in between, as long as the respirator maintains its fit and function and has not been used for an aerosol-generating procedure. The N95 should be discarded upon removal.
