The mask is here to stay Use it correctly!

Covid-19 has brought many changes to our way of living; it has also introduced new habits in our daily routine such as frequent hand sanitizer usage, social distancing, and permanently wearing a mask while we are away from home. All of these habits provide protection and help prevent the spread of the Corona Virus.

This garment is no longer only for medical use; it is now mandatory to wear a mask while in any public place, at work, or even at home to reduce the number of people infected with Covid-19.

Here are some tips for wearing your mask correctly:

  • Before putting it on, be sure to wash your hands well with soap and water or use some hand sanitizer gel.
  • You should grasp the mask from the garter’s ends or straps to avoid touching the protective barrier.
  • Pass the elastic bands or straps over the ears, and secure the mask on your nose.
  • Once on, avoid touching it or lowering it towards the chin to prevent bacteria accumulation.
  • Do not share or reuse it.

Important data:
Some masks are also made of fabric materials to avoid the increase of hospital waste due to surgical masks. Remember that if yours is made of fabric, you must wash it daily to prevent bacteria and infections.
Masks effectively reduce the spread of Covid-19, so wear one always, especially in public spaces or where there are a large number of people.

It is recommended to throw out your mask when it has completed its cycle and cut the elastic bands to prevent it from reuse and protect wildlife.
