How should one put on the mask?

To put on the mask, hold onto the straps or loops and place it over the nose and mouth all the way to the chin

Avoid touching the front and inner sides of the mask

The mask should be kept on even when talking

In case of need to remove the mask like for eating or drinking, the mask should be removed completely by holding on to the straps and folded with the inner side in and placed in a clean container such as an envelope. It may also be hanged on nails, hooks etc, in such a way that it does not touch any surfaces.

Wash hands with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer whenever one touches the front or inside of the mask.
