- Protective Effects of N95 Respirators vs Medical Masks [ Time Frame: 2010-2015 ]To determine and analyze the magnitude of the change, if any, in incidence of laboratory confirmed influenza in healthcare practitioners wearing N95 respirators (2009 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines) compared to medical masks (2007 guidelines).
- Incidence Determination of Influenza and Viral Respiratory Illness [ Time Frame: 2010-2015 ]Incidence of laboratory-confirmed influenza.
- Protective Effects [ Time Frame: 2010-2015 ]
- To determine and analyze the magnitude of the change, if any, in incidence of acute respiratory illness, influenza-like illness, and lab-confirmed respiratory illness in HCPs wearing N95 respirators compared to medical masks.
- To examine the relationship between incidence and possible risk factors, including compliance, attitudes and opinions of HCPs and workplace exposures.
- Incidence determination [ Time Frame: 2010-2015 ]- To measure the incidence of acute respiratory illness, influenza-like illness, and lab-confirmed respiratory illness in selected outpatient settings.
