Guidance on Personal Protective Equipment
If you're using an apron, you now need to remove it. The assistant will assess the type of apron used and will assist with untying the strap, then you will remove the apron by breaking the strap or lifting the strap over your head, rolling from the inside to outside and away from your body and discarding it in the appropriate receptacle. If the apron can be gently pulled away from the body by tearing it at the neck, this process should be used.
Once the apron is off, inspect your personal protective equipment for visible contamination, cuts, or tears. If you see your PPE has been compromised or if there are signs of contamination, disinfect it with an EPA-registered disinfectant wipe.
