Are there instances when disposable face coverings should be worn instead of cloth face coverings?

Added on |

Cloth face coverings may not be appropriate in some special work environments. Disposable face coverings should be worn in specific scenarios including but not limited to:

  • clinical research with patients;
  • some BSL2+ work that requires disposable lab coats (refer to APB approval for requirements); and
  • clean rooms.
