What is the recommended method of transitioning from wearing of a face mask to donning personal protective equipment (PPE) within animal facilities?

DLAR & DLC Animal Care

Remember that the SOM principles for resuming lab work (refer to https://medschool.duke.edu/research/reopening-research-laboratories/general-principles) include wearing a face mask at all times and maintaining physical distancing. When working in in DLAR facilities, keep personal masks separate from those worn in the animal rooms. Once leaving the facility, remove all PPE including the facemask.  Wash your hands with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer before redonning your personal facemask.  Hand sanitizer is located in the animal facility where a sink is not readily available.
