HOW TO PROPERLY WEAR A MASK

FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES TO PROPERLY WEAR YOUR FACE MASK

Wash your hands before and after touching the mask.

Touch only the bands or ties when putting on and taking off your mask.

Make sure the mask fits to cover your nose, mouth and chin. If you adjust the mask to cover those areas, wash your hands before and after.

Make sure you can breathe and talk comfortably through your mask.

TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS, AVOID THESE COMMON MASK-WEARING MISTAKES

We do not recommend wearing bandanas, gaiters or masks with exhalation valves as face coverings.

Don’t touch your or your child’s mask while it is being worn.

Don’t wear the mask under your chin with your nose and mouth exposed.

Don’t leave your nose or mouth uncovered

Don’t remove the mask while around others in public.

Don’t share your mask with family members or friends.
