Wearing a face mask correctly is very important in preventing the spread of COVID-19. The best way to wear a face mask is to:
- Make sure your mask fits snugly against your face. Gaps in and out around the edges of the mask can let in air with respiratory droplets.
- Pick a mask with layers. A mask with layers will stop more respiratory droplets getting inside your mask or escaping from your mask if you are sick. You can also wear one disposable mask underneath a cloth mask.
