Background: The number of cases infected with COVID-19 continues to increase, so it is very necessary to handle Covid-19 cases. One of them is the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for corpse recovery officers in handling Covid-19 bodies. The purpose of the study was to analyze the impact of the use of PPE on the Covid-19 corpse recovery officers at the Macanda Gowa Cemetery.

Results: The results of this study showed that the behavior of the mortuary officers was anxious, afraid, worried, had experience in handling Covid-19 corpses, wore personal protective equipment (PPE) for 2-3 hours, burned PPE, removed PPE at the specified location, size The PPE is not suitable for the Covid-19 relocation officer. The impacts of PPE are heat, heat, skin injuries, headaches, dehydration, hot skin (prickly heat), fever, Covid-19 positive, difficulty breathing. Managing the negative impact of using PPE by turning on the air conditioning (AC), opening the windshield, unzipping the hazmat shirt a little, and removing the mask and face shield, smearing the body with eucalyptus oil, cleaning the body, drinking water and exercising.
