Australian Guidelines for SARS-CoV-2 Infection Prevention and Control of COVID-19 in Healthcare Workers (v1.0, June 2021)

Megan Reilly

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.
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.
