PPE will only be necessary in the same workplaces as it was before COVID-19, like hospitals. Most workers will not need PPE, although some may choose to wear it to stay safe.

Otherwise basic hygiene measures are the most important way to stop the spread of COVID-19.

That includes:

  • Washing hands regularly with soap and water, or cleansing with hand sanitiser
  • Staying at home if you are sick
  • Coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow and then washing your hands or using hand sanitiser
  • cleaning surfaces regularly.
