Answer

Food service gloves: Should be put on after washing hands with soap and water. Handwashing is the most important way to prevent the spread of illness according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Gloves are an important part of keeping hands clean, but they are not a substitute for washing hands. Gloves should be used in addition to handwashing and not instead of it. It is important to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before putting on gloves.

Gloves should be changed:

  • After each task
  • If they become soiled or ripped
  • If you have touched your face or hair while wearing them
  • After coming into contact with someone who is ill
  • If you are going from working with raw food to ready-to-eat food without first washing your hands.
