New illustrated guide to PPE for community and social care settingsNew illustrated guide to PPE for community and social care settings

Public Health England have produced a new illustrated guide to PPE for care workers which is available here.

This is a useful resource for helping to interpret and communicate the existing guidance.

This guidance is relevant to homecarers and those working in extra-care and supported living settings and should be read in conjunction with any local policies. 

Live-in carers, who only provide care to the person that they live with, are considered to be a member of the household and should, therefore, follow publicly available guidance and use PPE as per standard infection prevention and control guidance (see question 26 of the domiciliary care PPE guidance).
