On 10 June 2021 the Australian government published new guidance on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for health care workers in the context of COVID-19. The National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce has now published its full set of consensus guidance on the use of P2/N95 respirators, surgical masks and eye protection. You can view it on the online guideline platform MAGICapp. https://app.magicapp.org/#/guideline/4826
The guidance has been developed using a ‘living evidence’ approach which allows the Taskforce to regularly update guidance as new evidence becomes available. The Taskforce continues to conduct daily searches for new evidence to inform its recommendations.
