Guidance on Personal Protective Equipment
In your doffing area, you will have two chairs. One will be where you sit to take off your boot or shoe covers only. This chair will be marked clearly as dirty.
Once you sit down, be careful not to touch one leg with the other. Then grasp the outside of the boot or shoe cover and pull down toward your ankle. Then, lift the boot or shoe cover over your heel, pull it off your foot, and dispose of it correctly. The exact way to remove the boot or shoe covers will vary based on the manufacturer's instructions.
