Washing and Wearing

How to properly store and clean masks:

  • A clean face cover should be used every day
  • Store used masks in a paper bag until ready to launder
  • Wash in hot water using soap or detergent that leaves no residue and dry masks completely

Proper wear and fit reminders:

  • Wash before use
  • Fit snugly but comfortably and allow for breathing without restriction
  • Ensure nose, mouth, and chin are always covered
  • Secure and remove mask with the ties or ear loops (avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth)
  • Use in public and office settings
  • Continue to maintain 6-foot social distancing wherever possible
  • Wash hands before putting on and immediately after removing mask
