Hi Maria,

We have used the tyvek chem resistant (not the med/surg type) shoe booties as well. Silvershield booties are also on the market. Having the student sit out lab for extended time is really not an option.

I would like to know what policies/procedures others have regarding students who are in leg casts where the toes are exposed during undergraduate chemistry lab. One option was shoe cover booties. Any other ideas? We do not currently have a procedure for this.
