Guidance on Personal Protective Equipment

In the doffing area, you will have two chairs. One will be where you sit to take off your boot covers only. This chair will be designated as the dirty chair.

Once you sit down, be careful not to touch one leg with the other. Then grasp the outside of the boot cover and pull down toward your ankle. Then, lift the boot cover over your heel, pull it off your foot, and dispose of it into the trash receptacle. The exact way to remove the boot covers will vary based on the manufacturer’s instructions.
