The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services – Pesticide Section and the N.C. Department of Labor – Agricultural Safety and Health Bureau have been working with the N.C. Agromedicine Institute to develop guidance for pesticide applicators and handlers regarding the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) amidst COVID-19.
The current guidance is provided below in English and Spanish:
Farms, nurseries and other agriculture-related businesses are facing a shortage of personal protective equipment, and the organizations continue to work with suppliers, state and federal agencies, and others to address the issue. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
The North Carolina Agromedicine Institute is a collaboration of East Carolina, NC State and N.C. Agricultural and Technical State universities. The institute is dedicated to identifying and addressing the health and safety risks of farmers, foresters, fishermen and their families and communities in North Carolina.
