P2/N95 masks: ‘fit-testing’ vs ‘fit-checking’

  • Fit-testing refers to a formal process of testing the seal achieved with a mask via exposure to a strongly-smelling substance which should be filtered out by the mask. If fit-testing is easily available, then it can be considered. However:
  • Fit testing consumes P2/N95 masks, which are in short supply
  • Fit testing needs to be repeated if staff gain / lose weight
  • A fit-test does not remove the need for a fit-check with each mask use

Fit-checking is the process of ensuring a mask achieves a good seal once it has been applied and should occur each time a mask is donned, even if fit testing has previously been undertaken.
