You Can Contact Corona Virus Even If You Wear Face Mask- See The Proper Way To Wear It

How Should You Wear a Surgical Mask?

While masks can give you protection, it can only do so when you’re wearing them properly. Follow these steps in making sure you’re using them right:

Place the colored side of the mask (blue or green) in front, away from your face, and the white portion inside, touching your face. The blue side is waterproof, preventing droplets of germs from sticking to it. The white part, on the other hand, is an absorbent material, soaking up droplets from your coughs or sneezes. 

Put the side of the mask that has a stiff, bendable thread on top, aligned to the bridge of your nose. Squeeze it there, molding your nose’s shape, so you can keep that area covered.

Stretch the mask until below the chin area.

Place the string loops around each ear.

Make sure that you have clean hands when doing these steps. As for removing the mask, it’s important not to touch its blue or white portion, as these may be filled with germs. Instead, follow these steps:

Hold the string loops and lift the mask gently off your face.

Wrap the mask in paper before throwing it out.

Wash your hands with soap and water.
