Abstract

Objectives
This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:

To assess the benefits and harms of antimicrobial mouthwashes and nasal sprays used by healthcare workers (HCWs)to protect themselves when treating patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection.

The review will also seek to address whether there is a difference if the intervention is used solely by the HCWs or both the HCWs and the patients they are caring for.
