WATCH: How To Use Face Masks Properly

Here are the steps, and a demonstration on how to use face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus:

  1. Only use a mask that has been washed and ironed.
  2. Wash your hands before putting the mask on.
  3. Place the mask with the correct side on your face, and ensure that it covers both your nose and mouth properly.
  4. Tie the strings behind your head, or if you are using elastic bands, make sure these are tight.
  5. Make sure it fits well. Move it around to get the best fit. Never touch the cloth part.
  6. Once you put on the mask, DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE again until you take it off.
  7. When you take it off, undo the ties, and carefully fold the mask inside out, hold it by the strings/elastic and place the mask in a container reserved for washing the cloth mask.
  8. Wash your hands thoroughly and dry before doing anything else.
  9. Wash cloth masks with warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly, and iron when dry.
  10. You must have at least two cloth masks per person so you will be able to wash one and have a clean one ready for use.
