U.S. agencies provide guidance on respirators
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a
letter to health care personnel and facilities

On the same day, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) made a corresponding update to its
