Answer: C

Put on latex-free disposable gloves.


Gloves is usually used in the food industry, especially when workers are preparing food. It’s quite unfortunate that some people don’t understand how to use gloves properly.

Wearing gloves is an important step in serving safe food. Because bare hand contact with the food contributes greatly to the transmission of foodborne illness.

Viral pathogens can easily be shed by the employees if they are already infected and this can be shed and transmitted to the food while preparing it.
