PPE Information for Non-Healthcare Community Settings

City of Toronto

Resources developed by the City of Toronto, Province of Ontario, and Government of Canada that provide information on when PPE is and is not required and how services can be redesigned to protect the health and safety of staff, volunteers and clients and reduce the need for PPE are attached.

The use of PPE should be based on organizational Occupational Health and Safety protocols and on a risk assessment that considers the risk of a specific activity and the source of the infection.

The infographics developed by Toronto Public Health on using/wearing non-medical cloth masks are incorporated into this document and are attached to this email. These resources can be found on the City's website via the links below:
