At some facilities, Medical professionals are having to reuse single-use medical masks and many are researching the best way to properly reuse medical masks to fight infectious diseases.
A recent study commissioned by the Stanford University School of Medicine found that the following methods were best options for decontaminating used masks:
Clean the mask with liquid or vapor hydrogen peroxide
Heat in an oven for 30 minutes at 158 degrees Fahrenheit
Hot Water Vapors from Boiling Water for 10 minutes
