Of course not. They might even give you a false sense of security and make you less careful. But they give you an additional layer of protection, when used correctly. For any PPE to function as a Protective shield it must be used properly.
Recently disposable gloves were sold out in many stores due to high demand. Looking for alternative solutions, several are turning to making reusable gloves.
The benefits of reusable gloves are that they can be made easily, fitted to your size, can be washed & reused and simply last longer than any disposable gloves.
Reusable gloves must be donned and doffed carefully too. If you don gloves for safety from the virus at a store, treat them as an extension of you hand, and follow the same protocols for safety. Hand hygiene is still necessary. Remove used gloves in a manner that keeps the soiled side inside. Keep a waterproof bag handy to store soiled gloves in. Don’t just keep them in your bag or car seat or leave them lying around the house.
Antimicrobial gloves may not need to be washed each time. For short term disinfection use an approved hand sanitizer like 70% alcohol spray before removing the gloves.
