COVID-19 (Coronavirus) community response guidance for volunteers

Personal Protective Equipment


We do not recommend the use of facemasks as an effective means of preventing the spread of infection. Facemasks play an important role in clinical settings, such as hospitals, but there’s very little evidence of benefit from their use outside of these settings.


These are also not necessary, as good handwashing and regular use of gel offers just as good protection as gloves can still carry germs, so they can still infect you if you touch your face while wearing them.
