Proper Use of PPE: Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Home
It may be possible for someone to contract the COVID-19 virus through touching an infected surface and then directly transferring it to their body by touching their mouth, nose and/or eyes. Diligently cleaning high traffic areas and disinfecting well used surfaces such as countertops and door handles at regular intervals can reduce the chances of the virus being transmitted.

Proper Use of PPE: Gloves
For the general public, the CDC recommends wearing gloves when you are cleaning or caring for someone who is sick. While running errands, or while out in the general public, using gloves is not usually recommended. Social distancing and washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds (or using hand sanitizer for 20 seconds) are considered to be the preferred methods of keeping your hands clean from bacteria while out in public. However, in combination with hand-washing, social distancing, and when used in the correct circumstances, gloves can be a nice supplemental tool to keeping safe from germs.
