Quoted from hwyhed:
just read that gloves don’t protect from virus, as compared to not wearing anything. Gloves can carry it just as easy..
To clarify: gloves will efficiently prevent the virus from reaching your skin. But the gloves won't kill the virus (no idea how long it will survive on this surface). So if you touch your head, scratch rub your eyes with your gloves, you may well become infected.
The solution would be NOT to touch your face, but this is extremely hard to do over a full day work. You would need to take a break often to change gloves.
Also note that *removing* latex gloves (without running ANY risk of contamination) is not as simple as it seems.
