Face mask

Face Mask 101

Wearing a face mask in public helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 — but only if worn properly, covering both your nose and mouth.

Wear your Mask Correctly
1. Wash your hands before putting on your mask
2. Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
3. Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
4. Make sure you can breathe easily
5. CDC does not recommend use of masks or cloth masks for source control if they have an exhalation valve or vent
