By on 05/13/2020

Wearing a face mask can help protect you and others from spreading COVID-19.

Here’s the right way to wear one:

Step 1: Stretch loops around ears or tie around crown of head and nape of neck.

Step 2: Spread fabric to extend from the bridge of your nose to under your chin.

Step 3: Adjust when needed to maintain the least amount of gaps possible.

Step 4: Store in a dry paper bag until machine washing and drying.
