The Food and Drug Administration Jan. 21 reissued emergency use authorizations for 10 systems authorized to decontaminate certain N95 respirators used by health care personnel when the COVID-19 pandemic results in an insufficient supply of new respirators. 

Among other changes, the reissued EUAs authorize the systems to decontaminate each compatible N95 respirator only four or fewer times, depending on the system.
