    The geography you are discussing making changes in is not defined so 'our healthcare system' in the Intro is not clear.

    small items:

    • consistency with with COVID19 vs COVID19, Covid-19 or COVID-19
    • can't read legend on figure
    • healthcare vs health care

    The term "Universal Precaution Principles" shows up in the conclusion and it is not clear what that means exactly.

Abstract

In this paper we review the current personal protective equipment (PPE) recommendations for healthcare workers in the setting of COVID19 pandemic and analyze the framework upon which authorities currently make these recommendations.  We examine multiple uncertainties within the model assumptions and conclude that precaution dictates that we should adopt a more stringent PPE policy for our healthcare workforce even in more routine helthcare settings.
