Select appropriate PPE including respirators, eye protection, gloves, and body protection to prevent exposure or limit contamination transfer per recommendations below; obtain PPE that meets industry standards wherever possible.  Follow manufacturer, CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], or WHO [World Health Organization] instructions for properly putting on, wearing, and removing PPE items; undertake extreme care and follow the appropriate sequence for doffing PPE that is contaminated.
