Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for COVID-19

Most job duties have no new or extra PPE requirements on campus due to COVID-19. Use all of your regular PPE based on your regular job duties. 

Decontamination of Reusable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

If you use reusable PPE (work gloves, face shields, etc.) for your regular work duties and you did not previously decontaminate them, you should now implement decontamination to prevent cross-contamination of yourself or items by potential COVID-19.

Disposing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

  • If you previously used PPE (gloves, gowns, N95 respirators, face shields, etc.) for your regular work duties, you will still dispose of or decontaminate your used PPE in the same manner.
  • If you are using disposable gloves and/or disposable surgical masks used for reduction of transmission of COVID-19, these items need to be disposed of in regular trash as you would a used facial tissue.
