(WIVT) – As we adjust to the “new normal,” one of the things that few of us are used to doing is wearing a mask.
Are you wearing yours correctly?
Here are some tips to ensure that your mask is fully protecting you when out in public.
- If you’re using a disposable mask, there will be a flexible strip on one end. Make sure the mask is put on so that strip is on top, and then bend it around your nose.
- Your mask should fully cover nose, mouth and chin areas.
- Once your mask is on, it should not be touched.
- Masks should be washed or disposed of regularly, depending on the frequency of use.
