Gloves

Gloves help protect you when directly handling potentially infectious materials or contaminated surfaces.

  • Wear gloves when directly handling potentially infectious materials or in contact with contaminated surfaces.

  • Vinyl, latex or nitrile gloves may be worn.

  • Change gloves when visibly soiled, torn or punctured.

  • Wash hands upon removing gloves. Gloves do not replace the need for excellent handwashing!

  • Gloves should be worn as part of Standard Precautions or Contact Precautions.
