I read the following in a private email:
One of my neighbors emailed me and said he has a few masks that he uses and recycles them; he wears one, when done he carefully stores it into a sealed plastic bag, uses the next one, does the same, and eventually 7 or more days (or masks) later, he rotates back to the original one and repeats the entire cycle. He mentioned that his assumption is that after 7+ days, the coronavirus is probably neutralized. I’m considering whether to adopt this method, or perhaps combine it with some combination of heat, ozone, and/or UV.
How many days does one have to wait before reusing a surgical or respiratory mask so that it is free of the SARS-CoV-2 virus?
I have crossposted the question at:
