# 2581 Splitting the Cover Up?

Q. Following question 2580 above, if the patient decides to continue the chemotherapy and to avoid possible Covid-19 contamination, wants to wear while he is attending treatment in the hospital a hooded supper-polymer coverall, that he will keep on until he leaves. Can he wear tefillin on it, since the material is very thin?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it would be considered a chatzitza or interposition. The Rov added that the patient should first consult with his doctors if this suit would really help and increase viral protection for him.
