Description:

The coronavirus, Covid-19 has led to thousands of cases of respiratory illness and has spread from China to at least 24 other countries. Therefore, infection prevention through respiratory protection of healthcare frontline staff is crucial to reduce the risk of the virus spread from infected patients. However, providing even the highest quality respirators alone does not reduce dangers posed by airborne hazards – it’s also necessary to reduce exposure by ensuring a respirator fits.

Join us for a free webinar to get infection control and prevention recommendations and learn how the PortaCount® Respirator Fit Tester helps you achieving a better respirator fit to protect you on the job.
