From the Document: "The City and County of San Francisco is sharing this Interim Framework for PPE [personal protective equipment] in an effort to promote the general welfare, health, and safety; employee health and safety; and effective client and patient care and services during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, given current PPE shortages. Anyone reviewing this Interim Framework for PPE must understand the following: [1] Data, knowledge, and recommendations concerning the safe use of PPE are evolving rapidly. CCSF [City and County of San Francisco] developed this Interim Framework based on its inventory of PPE and the client and patient care and services being provided as of May 23, 2020. This Framework is based specifically on the data, knowledge and recommendations concerning the safe use of PPE and supply chain prognosis as of May 23, 2020, and is subject to change without notice. [2] Care and service providers should consult CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidelines for the current selection, alternatives, and safe use of PPE. This Framework may not strictly comply with all guidelines for PPE but was developed to address the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency and the resulting PPE shortages."
