Protecting Your Workforce During COVID-19
PPE Guidance for non-health workers - 22 May 2020
We are publishing guidance on whether people at work need to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
The guidance is for those in essential roles but who aren't health workers. It will be useful for Government and for the private sector.
This is not a guidance for the general public. Our advice is that the public do not need to wear a face mask unless advised by KEMH.
Instead, you should practise social distancing when out, and remember always to wash your hands thoroughly after returning home. This will protect you much more than wearing a facemask.
Note however that FIGAS is presently require face masks for passengers.
