The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending the use of face masks/covering when in public especially in locations social distancing is hard to maintain, such as grocery stores. Use the following steps to ensure you are using your mask correctly and effectively:
Step 1: Wash your hands and pick up the mask by its ear loops without touching the mask itself. Wrap the loops over your ears as securely as possible.
Step 2: Ensure that your mouth and nose are fully covered and that the fit is snug but comfortable.
Step 3: When possible, cover your chin fully to avoid having to adjust the mask when you are in public.
Step 4: Once you are no longer in public, remove the mask by once again grabbing the ear loops. Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth when removing the mask and then wash your hands.
