Wearing a mask is one of the best ways to protect yourself from coronavirus. Many people, however, have gone a step further and are wearing gloves, too. But you need to make sure you remove your gloves safely once you no longer need them. The following is a step-by-step guide to safely removing your gloves.
Grab the first glove with your gloved hand
Make sure you don’t touch your skin, as you could potentially contaminate your skin if you do. Pull the glove away from your skin.
Peel the glove off
Pull the glove towards the tips of your fingers, turning the glove inside-out as you do. Hold the glove you just removed in your other hand.
Remove the second glove
Slide the fingers of your bare hand into the second glove at the top of your wrist. Push it away from your wrist, peeling it off and turning it inside out around the first glove.
Dispose of the gloves
Throw your gloves away. Do not reuse medical gloves.
Wash your hands with warm soap and water for 20 seconds to ensure your hands are clean and all traces of the virus are washed away.
