When it comes to gloves, health experts say there's a step everyone should follow first. You don't hear us talking much about wearing gloves and recommending people wear gloves out in public because what folks should mainly do is wash their hands frequently. Wash your hands when you come home from a place. Wash your hands when you're out someplace. If you do take the extra precaution and wear gloves, be sure to take them off properly to avoid exposure.


If you wore them, the trick to taking them off is to roughly peel them off so that they're inside out. Since the pandemic began many people started wearing gloves while going to grocery stores and essential businesses. But with that comes the improper disposal many people are seeing in parking lots and neighborhoods.


Right now the CDC is not recommending wearing gloves for everyday use but if you are going to be wearing for extra precaution when going to the store, the proper way to take them off according to the CDC is the glove-in-glove method like so. The ones picking up these used gloves after people are usually grocery store and sanitation workers.  it’s also a health hazard. You could be charged with littering and with this coronavirus going around you don’t know what’s on those gloves. It’s not worth the chance of a child seeing it in the parking lot, picking it up, and exposing themselves to it.


The key is to not touch the outside of the glove that might’ve just been in contact with contaminates. Gloves need to be disposed of in a trash can and the CDC recommends washing your hands after using them.
