Non-medical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a key role in helping keep us all safe. Please refer to PHO order on masks in indoor settings for the latest public health guidelines.
PPE can help reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 in these situations
- When someone with the virus coughs or sneezes near another person
- When someone touches an infected person or a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, mouth, or nose
Types of PPE include medical and non-medical face masks, gloves, gowns and aprons, and face shields and eyeglasses. The most common type of PPE outside healthcare settings is face masks.
