Helping You Identify Counterfeit N95 Masks
Counterfeit, sub-standard and non-equivalent N95-like respirators are flooding the marketplace as the demand for N95 respirators continues to rise. These products have not been certified and will not deliver the same respiratory protection as N95 respirators, which are certified by the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
Dr. Aaron Burry, Associate Director of Professional Affairs at CDA and the Staff Lead on COVID-19, sat down with me to explain how dentists can identify a counterfeit mask and show the most recent resource available on the CDA website that helps dentists learn important facts about counterfeit, sub-standard and non-equivalent N95 respirators/masks.
