During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial for everyone’s safety and well-being that we prioritize wearing face masks both within the clinic and in public settings.
A face mask serves as a protective barrier and should be worn properly, covering both the nose and mouth.
It can be made from fitted paper or fabric, ensuring a snug fit that effectively minimizes the risk of respiratory droplets spreading.
By wearing a mask, you not only protect yourself but also contribute to the safety of others.
Remember to always wash your hands thoroughly or utilize hand sanitizer before and after using your mask. If you are using single-use face masks, dispose of them immediately after use.
For reusable cloth masks, it is important to store them in a plastic bag until you can wash them.
Regularly wash your cloth face masks after use to maintain cleanliness and hygiene. Lastly, avoid touching your face mask once it is properly positioned to prevent any potential contamination.
By adhering to these practices, we can collectively create a safer environment and minimize the transmission of COVID-19.
