Protective Clothing for Ringworm Ward

    What is the best PPE when dealing with ringworm kittens? Currently I slip a coverall over my regular clothes and have a pair of designated Crocs waiting (both stored in the isolation room, right behind the door). I noticed when donning/doffing this coverall, I make a lot of moves, bending down to peel it off my legs, etc. I am thinking that could send spores airborne. Would it be wiser to wear a gown? If so, where can I find a good one? Obviously hospital gowns don't work with the string closure, so should probably be something with long sleeves and a zipper? Experts, please assist me in finding and ordering the best equipment.
