How to properly wear a mask

May 06, 2020

The CDC now recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings, so it’s important protect yourself and others when you leave home for groceries or other essential items.


  • Wash your hands with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer before you put on, touch, or take off your mask.
  • Use the ties or loops to put your mask on and take it off.
  • Cover your mouth, nose bridge, and chin.
  • Keep your hands away from your face and head while wearing the mask.


  • Touch your mask or face without first using soap and water for 20 seconds, or alcohol-based hand sanitizer until hands are dry.
  • Pull the front of the mask up or down to talk, breathe, or eat—assume the front is contaminated.
