Hi Everyone, I know there is a massive shortage of PPE and was wondering if any hospitals are figuring out ways to re-use masks such as putting the mask/N95 in UV light? Apparently you can re-use the mask if it is disinfected on each side with UV light. From my understanding nurses are feeling really unprotected in the midst of all this and think this could be a way to protect them if they are in a situation where they have to use their mask several times. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4699414/
