Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, respiratory protection has become a topic of utmost importance. COVID-19 is an illness caused by a virus that can spread from person to person. Because the virus can be transmitted through respiratory droplets, respiratory protection plays a critical role in stopping the spread of the illness.

Businesses and employers can prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace by following the guidelines set forth by the CDC. To accomplish this, employers are instructed to consider implementing activities that prevent and reduce transmission among employees, maintain healthy business operations and maintain a healthy work environment. To protect workers, employers must think about preventing the spread of COVID-19 and providing workers with the right protective equipment.
