1. Use STANDARD and DROPLET precautions for routine medical care of patients with confirmed or probable influenza, or influenza-like illness.
2. If a patient is outside of his room, s/he must wear a surgical mask.
3. Aerosol-generating procedures (e.g., bronchoscopy, intubation and extubation, deep open tracheal suctioning, chest physiotherapy, CPR, etc.)
4. N95 masks require fit testing. If you have not been fit tested within the past year and feel that you will need an N95 mask for aerosol-generating procedures please contact Occupational Health. N95 masks cannot be used with beards, and bearded healthcare workers might need to consider shaving, if necessary for safe patient care.
