To safely don your face mask follow these instructions:

  1. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Dry your hands with a clean paper towel and throw the paper towel away.
  2. Check the mask for any defects such as a tear or missing tie or ear loop. Throw away any that are defective.
  3. Make sure the exterior (the side without the pocket) side of the mask is facing out, away from your face.
  4. Place the mask on your face with the exterior facing out.
  5. If the mask has ear loops, put one loop around each ear. Our masks feature elastic or adjustable elastic ear loops.
  6. Once the mask is in place, if your mask features a bendable edge, use your index finger and thumb to pinch the bendable top edge of the mask around the bridge of your nose.
  7. Make sure the mask is completely secure. Make sure it covers your nose and mouth so that the bottom edge is under your chin.
  8. Wash your hands.
