    Discussed in the town hall and your presentation was related to wearing a N95 mask. Our plan was to fit test staff for N95 masks for chemo spills however I was told:
    “Will do. Sounding like it won’t be N95 because they don’t protect against the chemicals and will have to be a PAPR.”
    Any insight on this?? I feel like I remember a slide during your presentation that said to use a N95 mask for spills…..
