Covid-19 Respirator Reuse Guidance

 Respiratory Protection During the COVID-19 Pandemic Best Practices for the Agricultural Community The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has led to a high demand for all types of respirators and other personal protective equipment (PPE). Despite the current shortage, farmers and agricultural workers still need respiratory protection for many tasks in agriculture. This resource was developed in collaboration with the Central States Center for Agricultural Safety Health and High Plains Intermountain Center for Agriculture Health and Safety and provides recommendations and provides tips for conserving respirator inventory while supplies are limited.  

Protecting Others and Reducing the Spread of Covid-19 with Cloth Face Masks

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.  Studies on infection control report that these droplets usually travel around 6 feet (about two arms lengths). CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, farm supply stores, and gas stations.

This resource was created through a collaborative effort with our organization and the Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety and the Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health and Safety   to emphasize the importance of wearing a cloth face covering to protect others & reduce the spread of COVID-19.
