In the event of a shortfall of N95 masks, we propose devising a method to clean them without affecting their specifications.

Plan is to also setup a testing unit to test their efficacy of new or decontaminated masks.

Current status

The team has assembled a setup to measure pressure drop across the mask as well as measure the particle count across it.

Current requirement

Experts who can outline methods of cleaning the masks and those who can come up with methods of testing them post-cleaning to ensure that specifications are still met.
