Respirator Fit Testing Exemption Extended - April 30, 2021
EPA has extended respirator fit testing exemptions until September 30, 2021. Some requirements for pesticide handlers were relaxed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and PPE shortages.
NOTE: Label requirements and other regulations remain in effect. Handler employers and handlers are expected to make every effort to comply with all applicable pesticide product label and WPS requirements, and to exhaust all available compliance options.
