How to Wear a Mask

By April 10, 2020April 20th, 2020No Comments

Surgical masks are a necessity during the COVID-19 crisis. However, we’ve noticed many people not properly wearing their masks. We’re going to describe how to properly wear a mask— be sure to pay attention, as this info can really keep you and your loved ones safe. 

  1. The exterior of the mask has a wire that goes over the top. You’re going to place the mask on your face and over your ears. The wired portion of the mast should be directly on the nose. 
  2. Pull the bottom of the mask over your mouth and chin. This is where many people mess up and don’t wear their masks correctly. 
  3. Press the wired portion of the mask around your nose and cheeks. This is to prevent anything from entering or leaving.
