How to properly put on/ take off a face mask

Did you know that most people do not put on/ take off their masks properly? Check here to make sure you’re not one of them. Remember, the WHO says do not touch the front of the mask. This is the part that may be contaminated if you encounter a person with COVID-19 or if you are a carrier. If you happen to touch the front of the mask for whatever reason, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer. Always wash your hands before putting on a mask and after taking the mask off.
