When to wear gloves during a special period

As everyone knows, in this special period, we often need to wear gloves in order to ensure our hygiene and health.Then let’s take a look with the editor to see when we need to wear gloves?

When cleaning

Follow precautions listed on the disinfectant product label, which may include-wearing gloves (reusable or disposable) and having good ventilation by turning on a fan or opening a window to get fresh air into the room you’re cleaning. Wash your hands after you have removed the gloves.

When caring for someone who is sick

If you are providing care to someone who is sick at home or in another non-healthcare setting,use disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting the area around the person who is sick or other surfaces that may be frequently touched in the home.

Use disposable gloves when touching or having contact with blood, stool, or body fluids, such as saliva, mucus, vomit, and urine.

After using disposable gloves, throw them out in a lined trash can. Do not disinfect or reuse the gloves.

Wash your hands after you have removed the gloves.

Gloves in the workplace

Guidelines and recommendations for glove use in health care and work settings will differ from recommendations for the general public.

Other ways to protect yourself

You can protect yourself by keeping social distance (at least 6 feet) from others and washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds (or using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol) at key times, and practicing everyday preventive actions.
