COVID-19 personal protective equipment (PPE)

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel »

This revised guidance concerns use of personal protective equipment (PPE) by health and social care workers, in the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic. It supersedes previous PPE guidance. This guidance relates solely to considerations of PPE, represents one section of infection prevention and control guidance for COVID-19 and should be used in conjunction with local policies.

Primary care, ambulatory care and other non-emergency outpatient clinical settings

For primary care, ambulatory care and other non-emergency outpatient settings (including hospital outpatient clinics) plastic aprons, FRSMs, eye protection and gloves should be used for any direct care of possible and confirmed cases. Such PPE may be indicated for work in such settings regardless of case status, subject to local risk assessment.

For health and social care workers working in reception and communal areas but not involved in direct patientcare, every effort should be made to maintain social distancing of 2 metres. Where this is not practical use of FRSM is recommended.
