Gloves & Finger Cots
Gloves and finger cots should never be used in place of hand washing. Hands must be washed before putting on gloves and when changing to a new pair. Gloves used to handle food are for single-use and should never be washed or reused.
They must be changed at least every four hours. Additionally, replace them when they become soiled, torn, or when beginning a new task.
