Surgical Fabric would work. Halyard H600 FABRIC is one kind.

Do you need a moisture barrier?

Uh, from what, do you want your PPE gown to personally protect you?

Please let it be be grizzly bears. Please let it be grizzly bears.... Because that way, that documentary featuring Troy Hurtubise could serve as an inspiration to you.

Yeah. I think it might be getting to me. A little bit.
;-P

Perhaps the ideal PPE for isolating oneself from microbes in the surrounding air, might look like the suit worn by Mr. Freeze, of the DC Comics universe.

In particular, I was imagining those versions of the suit with a bell-jar shaped, transparent helmet, because, I think I am sick of masks, and I would prefer the wearer's face be visible.

Next, substitute his freeze gun, with one of these newfangled, electrostatic disinfectant sprayers, and that's all anyone would need to suit up, as some kind of virus fighting superperson.

Depends on the level of protection...
For dust and such a simply Tyvek suit will do...
