COVID-19 safety update

We recommend a new routine for the end of your shift:


  • Put your duty uniform in a clean plastic bag
  • Shower
  • Change into a clean set of street clothes
  • When you get home, transfer your duty uniform directly from the bag into your washing machine and immediately process it through your laundry.
