Disposable Face Masks - Tips

HOW TO WEAR A DISPOSABLE MASK

  • Its important that you clean your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer before touching the mask.
  • Remove the mask from the box and make sure there are no obvious tears or holes in either side of the mask.
  • Determine which side of the mask is the top. The side of the mask that has a stiff bendable edge is the top and is meant to mold do the shape of your nose.
  • Determine which side of the mask is the front. The coloured side of the mask is usually the front and should face away from you, while the white side touches your face.
  • Follow the instructions below to place the mask on your face:
    • Hang the face mask with its elastic loop on the ears and make sure your nose and chin are covered with it as well as the face.
    • Press the part close to the nose to make sure the nose clip is secured firmly.
    • Press the face mask on the face to make sure it is very close to the contour of your face.
