The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) educational materials to be used as an aide when training healthcare personnel on selecting and correctly using; donning (putting on), doffing (taking off), and disposing of PPE to protect themselves from exposure to COVID-19 in the healthcare settings.
New COVID-19 Educational Materials Include:
- How to Safely Put On PPE Video
- How To Safely Take Off PPE Video
- How to Put On and Take Off PPE Fact Sheet
- How to Put On and Take Off PPE Poster
- PPE Illustrations
These materials were created to increase the safety of the healthcare work environment through improved use of PPE by healthcare personnel. Additional Infection Control recommendations for Healthcare Personnel can be found on CDC’s Infection Control Guidance website.
