As a healthcare professional, I take for granted knowing how to properly wear and use PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). In my previous about how to wear a face mask, I discussed how it must cover your nose and mouth completely, to be effective.
Wearing gloves in public should never be done! Once you put on a pair of latex gloves, everything you touch (your purse, your wallet, your car door, your groceries, your hair, etc.) becomes CONTAMINATED!! Wearing gloves to the grocery store does NOTHING to protect you from the Coronavirus. The Coronavirus is an airborne pathogen, it cannot gain entry into your body through skin contact.
The best thing you can do is wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands. Did I mention wash your hands??
I promise when we get back to normal operations, I won’t bombard you as frequently with these emails. I just miss you all! I am beyond grateful for all the emails and texts I have been getting from you. They mean so much and I share them with my amazing staff. We are here for you!
