In this article, we are going to give you a step by step guide on how to properly wear a mask o protect yourself from the violent Corona Virus. We hope that you would keep all the steps in mind.
- The very first step is to make sure that your hands are absolutely clean. If you have a clean source of water, wash your hands with soap and clean water before holding the mask that you are about to use. But, in the event that you do not have a source of clean water for hand washing then you could use a 70% alcohol to get rid of germs and bacteria that could be in your hands so that it would not be transferred in the mask that you are going to wear.
- Secondly, check the mask that you are going to wear for any dirt, holes or any tears. You want a mask that is clean before you put it on your face.
- Hold the ear loops of the mask if you are going to put it on. Never hold the mask itself so that you would not transfer any germs or bacteria or any dirt. Make sure that the mask is in the right position.
- Secure it to your nose by pinching the strip on the top portion of the mask. Secure the mask in a way that it covers your nose and your mouth.
Always wear a face mask and always stay safe.
