Information on N95 Mask Fit Testing


What is N95 Mask Fit Testing?


All health care workers and students entering any health care fields are either required or strongly recommended to be mask fit tested to prevent the spread of airborne infectious diseases.


Mask fit testing consists of ensuring that an N95 respirator mask ‘fits’ properly to your individual facial structure.


The process of mask fit testing consists of education, training, and testing of a specific N95 respirator. The health care provider is evaluated for the ability to taste a bitter solution and is asked to perform a series of simple exercises to ensure that no leaks are present around the mask. This process takes approximately 15 minutes.
