More than 164k Coronavirus cases have been confirmed to date. With hygiene standards now at the forefront of concerns for the healthcare industry, have you been taking all possible measures to ensure your garment laundering and distribution process is as sterile as it can be?

Following the 2003 SARS outbreak, the New York Times published: “The Doctors Hands Are Germ Free. The Scrubs Too?” It is believed that many healthcare facilities ignore physician clothing as vectors in disease transmission (Parker-Pope, 2008). Studies have proven the prevalence of pathogens carried on the attire of healthcare providers who come into contact with patients (Williams et al, 2015; Reynolds, & Gerba, 2012; Perry, Marshall, & Jones, 2001; Irene, 1998; Nordstrom).

The risk of transferring coronavirus can be largely mitigated by improving safety standards
