Use of gloves in healthcare and non-healthcare settings in the context of COVID-19

In the context of COVID-19, there is currently insufficient evidence to recommend the regular use of gloves as a preventive measure to the public and most occupations outside of healthcare. Community use of gloves may lead to the misconception that hand hygiene can be neglected. Wearing gloves could lead to the misconception that you can touch anything without the risk of getting infected with SARS-CoV-2.
