N95 masks

    Is anyone doing home irradiation with germicidal UV-C lamps for N95 masks? Our hospital is doing this for the hospitalists and intensivists but as yet not for clinic staff. I would like to be able to re-use the two I have.

    This is what I'm doing at my clinic. I just bought some UVC filter bulbs for fish tanks

    they do leave a bit of a burnt smell on the masks and after you've done it about 20 times they do start to break down from the damage so you have to discard them then.
