If masks are available, should line cooks wear them?

N95’s masks…nope those are fit tested yearly for healthcare providers.

Basic surgical masks…sure

FYI we have a N95 shortage for providers. Doctors, nurses, firefighters, emts, paramedics, respiratory therapists…we are being told to reuse our N95’s unless obviously soiled. CDC said worse case scenario use a bandana lol


Nobody knows for sure, so if there were no shortage of masks, it would be prudent.

But in most cases that have been investigated infection resulted from direct or prolonged close personal contact.
