There is plenty you can practically do to reduce your risk, it's never a case of "if I get it I get it"If I get it I get it. I work in a shop, a busy one... every surface i touch could be contaminated. We have plenty of hand sanitiser, but unless i use it after everything i touch, it's just a placebo really.
Umless you wash the gloves every time you wear them I don't see the point.There is plenty you can practically do to reduce your risk, it's never a case of "if I get it I get it"
Wear gloves at all times, this reduces the likelihood of you touching your face with your hands
Maintain minimum distances from customers and colleagues
At the moment you take off your gloves, wash/sanitize your hands. Difficult to remove gloves without passing any virus onto your hands
And it will get much busier.My father has been on a respiratory ward. The hospital decided he hasn't got flu, coronavirus or anything like that. He is hopefully going home today (been in since last week). The very quiet and tranquil conditions another member posted about in another hospital is not something I recognise. It's pretty busy.
Virus has a much shorter "life" on fabrics than hard surfaces so when you come to put them on the next day any virus should be inert. In any case, the benefit to the individual is that you don't touch your face with your hand. Wearing gloves discourages this whether the glove is clean or not.Umless you wash the gloves every time you wear them I don't see the point.
Exactly my situation, my wife is really ill with flu symptoms and respiratory distress but as she's not been in China etc there's apparently no need for a test.You need an option for "I or someone close had the symptoms but NHS 111 said didn't need testing"
Wife has had the symptoms but due to no link to China, Italy etc. advice was just to get better and carry on as normal. May or may not have been exposed to Covid-19. I do not know.
