Do Face Coverings Require Respirator Fit Tests?

Face coverings do not require respirator fit tests. Face coverings are similar to surgical masks, which are not considered to be "tight fitting" respirators. Employees who use face coverings are not required to have medical screenings or fit tests. Disposable respirators, such as N95s, are considered to be "tight fitting", and therefore require medical screenings and fit tests.
