PAPR masks for TB

  1. I am currently taking care of a patient who is in isolation for TB. In order to care for him, all workers must don PAPR masks.

    I am wondering how necessary is this? I do it because it's policy (and I feel a bit like an astronaut ). If TB is only spread my dropplets, isn't a simple mask enough?
