# 2585 Wash Hand in Glove?

Q. On question 2581 (regarding wearing tefilin by a patient undergoing chemotherapy and to avoid possible Covid-19 contamination, is wearing a hooded supper-polymer coverall). Can one in such situation wash his hands after sleeping (neig’l vasser),while wearing medical or hospital gloves?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that for washing hands when removing ruach ra’a after waking up or coming out of a cemetery, in case of need one does not have to remove the thin plastic medical gloves one is wearing to prevent infections.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a
