(2)Reuse disposable medical masks or not

Certain types of masks, such as N95 and surgical masks, are designed for single-use only. For ordinary people, this means putting them in the trash can after wearing a mask.

But if properly disinfected, they can be reused in a professional environment. For example, N95 masks can be sterilized by UVC sterilization radiation or vapor-phase hydrogen peroxide. However, due to low demand, no tests have been conducted on the disinfection or reuse of masks.

In case the mask cannot be replaced between two uses, it is recommended that you check it when you remove the mask.
