How to wear, use, remove and dispose of masks


• Before wearing a mask, clean your hands with an alcohol-free hand sanitizer or wash your hands with soap and water.


• Cover your mouth and nose with a mask and fasten it so that there is no gap between your face and the mask.


• Avoid touching the mask while wearing it; if you touch the mask, clean your hands with an alcohol-free hand sanitizer or wash your hands with soap and water.


• If the mask becomes wet, replace it with a new one immediately. Do not reuse disposable masks.


• Remove the mask: Do not touch the face of the mask with your hands. Remove the mask through the cords at both ends, immediately throw it into the closed trash can, and clean your hands with an alcohol-free hand sanitizer or soap and water.
