Body protection provided by medical gowns and aprons or chemical (biological) protective clothing (CPC) are another form of protective equipment that is recommended to use by healthcare workers involved in the direct care of COVID-19 patients.
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control recommends wearing at least long-sleeved water-resistant clothing to prevent body contamination. This PPE item does not need to be sterile unless it is used in a sterile environment (e.g. operating room). If MD (EN 13795-2) or PPE (EN 14126) clothing are not available, a single use plastic/water resistance apron worn over the non-water-resistant gown can be used.
