Fit testing will be available between Aug. 16 and 27.

Registration will be opening in Apollo for Nebraska Medicine and UNMC employees to sign-up for fit testing. Please watch Apollo over the next week for available sessions.

This is not annual fit testing.

Those that qualify for fit testing include:

  • Employees in patient-facing roles previously only fitted to the 1860, 1860S or 8210 and would like to be fitted to the 1870(+) due to comfort and less facial irritation
  • Employees in patient-facing roles previously only fitted to the 1870, which is now out-of-stock

Employees that do not wear an N95 for patient care do not need to be fit tested.

Employees that have been fitted to the 1860, 1860S, or 1870(+) mask can continue wearing those masks without needing to be re-fitted.

Fit testing by appointment only. Walk-ins may not be accommodated.
