A face mask should act as a barrier and prevent people from touching their faces.

Perform hand hygiene before you put on a face mask and after you take it off.

Do not leave your mask hanging under your chin or neck.


Do not touch your face when you have your mask on.

Do not wear your mask on your head.

Do not wear your mask loosely with gaps on the sides.

Do not wear the mask below your nose.

Do not leave your chin exposed.

Wear your mask so that it comes close to the bridge of your nose and completely covers your chin

Do your best to tighten the loops or ties so that it fits snugly around your face and that it is without gaps.
