PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS
As an essential worker you are playing a vital and much appreciated role in keeping New Zealand running during Alert Level 4.
You may be wondering if you need to be using personal protective equipment (PPE) in order to keep yourself safe during this time. You may also be wanting to know what to do to protect those in your bubble when you return home.
The Ministry has collated all the information you need to know about PPE and put it on one single page here.
On this webpage you can find:
· Tips on how to keep you and your whānau safe as an essential worker
· PPE and hand hygiene posters
· PPE and hand washing videos
· More information for specific groups such as community-based midwives and health care workers at border-control.
The content available on this page provides guidance for all essential workers across a variety of work settings.
