PPE and risk of COVID-19 transmission in healthcare

PPE and risk of COVID-19 transmission in healthcare

Dr. Jason Bowling, hospital epidemiologist for University Health, talks about PPE, the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the health care environment, and when it's safe to go home and hug your family.

Here’s what we asked him:

  • How do masks keep us safe?
  • How much risk is involved in working with or around COVID-19 patients?
  • Should health care workers take special steps to change and sanitize their clothes when they go home?
  • Are PPE and hand hygiene enough to keep my family safe?
  • What if I have the virus on my clothes?
  • What about healthcare workers who are exposed to undiagnosed COVID-19 patients?
