 I just put together a webinar for WHO on OSH for HWs in the time of Covid-19.  There was almost nothing about prolonged use of PPE in the literature - but heat stress and skin/mucosal barrier damage do occur.
The source I used is an accepted but I don't think yet published article out of China
     Consensus of Chinese experts on protection of skin and mucous membrane barrier for healthcare workers fighting against coronavirus disease 2019 

If you can't find it (I found it on PubMed) let me know and I'll send it to you.

 Good morning everyone:
  Was wondering if you had to deal with mask-related skin reactions and rashes in the context of having employees wear masks all day!!!
  If you did, are you calling those work-related and offer WC evaluations and treatment!!

Thanks ,
