How to safely wear a face covering
- Clean your hands before putting it on and taking it off. Clean your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer for at least 20 seconds.
- Make sure it fits. No gaps between the face covering and your face. It should cover your mouth and nose from below the eyes to around the chin.
- Secure it with ties or ear loops so that it is comfortable and doesn’t hinder breathing and vision
- Keep your hands away from your face while wearing a face covering. If you do touch your face, clean your hands immediately.
- Do not share your mask with others
- Wear it as long as it is comfortable, and remove it when it becomes soiled, damp, damage or difficult to breathe through
- Wash your cloth face covering in the laundry
- Continue to stay two metres away from others
- Clean surfaces that a dirty face covering touches
