After three months in quarantine, life is slowly getting back to normal. For some, adapting to a new way of functioning may be difficult. Most of us are trying to go back to the little things that brought us joy, but we still need to be cautious. We need to remember that the Coronavirus is still around and that it is up to us to take action.
Regardless of where we are, the virus remains a concern when we venture out in public. Where I live, it is mandatory to wear masks when going out and people are pretty compliant. Unfortunately, some people are wearing their masks the wrong way. This is why I decided to write this short post to explain how to properly wear it.
Wearing a cloth mask helps protect others by preventing the wearer from spreading respiratory droplets. These simple tips if followed properly can increase safety.
You should wear your mask over your nose and under your chin. It is very important to avoid touching your face covering. In the event we do so, wash your hands and the mask.
Remember to remove your mask by the ear loops and pull it straight off your face. Place the loops together to fold it in half so the side that was facing to your mouth is folded inside. Put it in a paper bag.
Wash your mask after daily use with hot or warm water and dry on the hottest setting.
Most importantly, wear your mask in public, especially indoors and mostly where 6-feet distances are difficult to maintain.
Let’s continue to follow the CDC guidelines and attempt to enjoy our summer safely. Together we can fight Covid-19.
Be safe, Be well!
This is a very informative article, we can never have enough information on how to keep safe. Thank you
As we are still battling this pandemic, the more information, the safer we will be.
I totally agree with you. Wearing face mask is like our new normal. Face mask and hand gel is new addition in my bag. Not just to protect ourselves but others too.
Same for me, Anne!
This kinds of articles help to create self-consciousness and serve as a reminder to always practice safety precautions
I agree, Adebimpe!
Really informative article and great tips.
Thank you, remember to share with others.
I feel like so many aren’t following the guidelines in terms of handwashing and properly caring for themselves by putting on a mask when they go out. Such great points in this post.
Please share and raise awareness
If only everyone would wear a mask and follow the guidelines things would be much better.
I am reminding my members to do that everyday!
Great tips! Definitely wash those mask!
I wash my mask every two weeks and really practice wearing masks and washing hands. It is common to wear masks here in Japan.
Staying clean and having a mask is the safest and a great way to help our dear frontliners and lessen the numbers of positive cases. I hope the world goes well in no time.
This is my hope as well.
Wearing a mask is such a simple way to protect others, great information
So many still refuse to follow these simple guidelines.
My 3 year old goes around telling people to wear their masks and for god sake wash their hands 😁😁
You have done an amazing job, you should be proud of her.
This pandemic crisis, we should take care of ourselves and others too. Wearing face masks is a must now, we need to take precautionary measures seriously.
We sure need to do that.
Good one!! People need to read this. Just wearing mask is not important but wearing and disposing is also really important.
Thank you for this. I really hope more people will wear masks here in the UK!
It takes one to start something positive.
Thank you, I hope people can take this seriously and implement it
This is what I am hoping for as well.
Definitely sending this to friends, we all need a reminder!
