Default Appropriate MOPP level for BSL-X

Just curious if there is a general mapping for MOPP level and BSL. I have some idea; MOPP level 1 for BSL-2, MOPP level 3 for BSL-3, MOPP level 4 for BSL-4. Is there any kind of directive for that sort of thing?

I'm not sure the 2 are interchangeable or related to each other.

Wouldn't BSL levels be more akin to laboratory's/research and MOPP for the level of potential exposure to nuclear/chemical attack?

You are correct. However since MOPP is used for biological exposure as well, what is the MOPP level for military entry of a BSL-3 lab or area contaminated by the contents of such a lab? That what I am asking.

I guess you would need to figure out what BSL-3 agents are present.

Looking at https://osp.od.nih.gov/wp-content/up...ml#_Toc3114384 we can get a listing of what are considered BSL-3 Agents.

Now we would need to know what the lab may have had in inventory. At a minimum I would be guessing MOPP-3 and more likely MOPP-4 would be standard when entering any BSL-3 lab or area. MOPP-0 thru 2 would be bad if the lab had Fungal BSL-3 agents. Then MOPP-3 would be bad if they had BSL-3 Bacterial agents.

Just some ideas.

So I would say MOPP-4 in all cases as it is the safest.
