When removing protective clothing, cross contamination is a common occurrence. It would be prudent to double up on gloves and possibly add a cotton liner as first layer. This is done extensively in the nuclear industry. It would also be prudent to us

David commented on Disinfect prior to disrobing.

It acts as another barrier when taking off rubber gloves. There are various combinations used depending on the nature of the hazard. For loose surface contamination, as a minimum; cotton liners, rubber gloves, plastic shoe covers, rubber shoe covers, cotton anti contamination jump suit, cotton head cover, and tape for seams. There are an assortment of respirators for airborne particulates. More layers are added as contamination levels increase. Sometimes it's doubling up. Some occasions require complete encapsulation and engineering controls.
