In challenging and uncertain times like these, it’s essential to use personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect yourself and others from the Covid – 19 pandemic. If you or someone you know has diabetes, they are considered high risk if they contract the disease because of their underlying medical condition. PPE includes masks, hand sanitizer, washcloths, and more. Here are 4 PPE products to protect yourself and others from this rapidly spreading disease.
1. Face Masks
This pack of 50 disposable face masks has high filtration capacity, low resistance for breathing, and are hypoallergenic. These masks help to cover your coughs, sneezes, face, and breathing from others. Covering your mouth with your elbow if you couch or sneeze does not fully protect others from the saliva droplets shot into the air. A face mask keeps the spread of saliva droplets completely contained, protecting those around you. Non-medical masks may not provide protection from fluids or filter microparticles, but they are necessary to protect against pathogens, such as viruses.
2. Hand Sanitizer
This Hand Revive Sanitizer eliminates 99.9% of the most common germs and bacteria to keep you and your loved ones safer. This product meets CDC recommendations for hand sanitizers and contains antibacterial power to help cleanse and disinfect hands without water. This hand sanitizer is a perfect “no-rinse” solution for hand hygiene at home, work, medical facilities, or on-the-go activities. It has a 70% alcohol formula that’s fragrance-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and phthalate-free.
This pack of 50 pre-moistened Advocate washcloths can make for complete and convenient personal cleaning anytime and anywhere. These extra-large washcloths are 8” by 12” and are made from a soft, yet very strong material. Mildly scented, Advocate wipes feature a combination of aloe and lanolin for gentle and effective cleaning. This is a great option to keep in your bag if you have young children to keep them clean and protected.
The ADVOCATE Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer helps get quick and accurate temperature readings with the touch of a button. The convenient built-in optional speaking function and fever notification give you the confidence that you need to ensure proper temperature readings are received. This is a powerful tool to know if you should go to the hospital to get tested for COVID-19 if you have a rising fever.
