Making Decisions About Masks

On May 3, 2023, Shared Health announced that the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements introduced during the COVID-19 Pandemic would be lifted effective May 10, 2023.

This change in guidance may prompt some practical nurses, including those who practise outside of the publicly operated healthcare system, to question whether their own PPE usage and mask policies should change.

Please review the CLPNM’s Guidance Document for information on how to apply your professional standards when making decisions about masks and PPE in your practice.
