Use these instructions for donning, or putting on your PPE, if you are caring for a COVID-19 positive patient next and are reusing the mask, faceshield, and gown.

Print and hang "Inside" page up inside the COVID-19 patient rooms near the bin where reusable gowns are going. Two options (page 2 or 4 of this pdf), based on COVID-19 status of next patient.

Post "Outside" outside COVID-19 patient rooms, use to doff. Two options, if your next patient is COVID-19 positive (page 3 of this pdf) and if your next patient COVID-19 status is negative or uncertain (page 5 of this pdf).
