Not sure how to use and care for your cloth face mask? Follow these tips.

  • Ensure your mask covers your nose and chin.
  • Wash your hands before and after touching the mask.
  • Determine which side is the inside of your mask and wear it that way until you wash the mask again.

  • Wash and dry your mask every day.
  • When you’re not wearing your mask, store it in a clean container, such as a plastic or paper bag.
