Tips While Wearing PPE

When wearing gloves or masks as personal protective equipment, remember ...

If you are going to wear gloves while running errands, please educate yourself on cross contamination.

For example, touching your grocery cart with your gloves, then touching your phone with the same gloves, then later being home and touching your phone without gloves is NOT effective.

If you wear a surgical mask, the idea is to over your nose and mouth to protect your respiratory system. Do not pull the mask down to expose your nose; it defeats the purpose.

If you wear an N95 mask, BOTH elastics must be worn to ensure a secure fit. If you are not wearing both elastics, it defeats the purpose.
