Background

In March 2020, the FDA issued the Enforcement Policy for Gowns, Other Apparel, and Gloves During the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Public Health Emergency guidance to provide a policy to help expand the availability of surgical apparel for health care professionals, including gowns (togas), hoods, and surgeon’s and patient examination gloves during this pandemic.

In May 2020, the FDA issued the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for gowns and other apparel in response to concerns relating to insufficient supply and availability of gowns and other apparel for use by health care personnel as personal protective equipment (PPE) for use in health care settings in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to protect both health care personnel and patients from the transfer of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in low or minimal risk level situations to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
