They then outline the following steps:

  1. Make sure your mask has no tears or holes.
  2. Make sure it is facing the correct side.
  3. Hold the mask by its loops.
  4. Place the loops securely on both ears.
  5. Make sure your nose and mouth are covered.

They also offer a few more tips:

  • Do not touch your mask while you are wearing it.
  • When removing your mask, hold it by its loops, not the part that covers the mouth.
  • Keep your mask in a clean place, preferably in a container or box without other things.
  • Wash your mask as often as you can with detergent soap. Every day, if possible.
