If anyone is transporting a patient and within 2 m they would be required to utilize PPE for droplet and contact precautions which would be mask and eye protection (gloves & gown as well).  An N95 is only required for the AGMP’s (Aerosol Generating Medical Procedures) which would not be taking place in an elevator.  If it’s an intubated patient being transferred this should be done with physicians and nurses from ICU and they would all be fitted for an N95.
