    Gloves are not good, years ago in a food handler class the instructor said people that use gloves do not wash their hands often and often keep the same set on for long times touching multiple types of food. It would be better not to wear the gloves and wash hands often. Unless you have a cut or infection i wouldn’t recommend gloves.
