What does this mean?
EVERY TIME you put on your mask:
- Wash your hands
- Make sure:
- The mask is intact
- The front (usually the colorful side) faces out
- Put your mask on over your nose and mouth
- Pinch the nose bridge and pull the mask down so it covers your chin
- Check for gaps and leaks. Not sure how to do a fit check? Take a look at our guide.
