How to Properly Use a Medical Face Mask
Whether you're a professional caregiver, family or friend caregiver, or just a member of the community doing the right thing, the proper use of a medical face mask is critical to its effectiveness. Masks are most effective when used in combination with FREQUENT hand-cleaning with an alcohol-based hand rub or with soap and water. Everyone who uses a medical face mask needs to study how to use it safely and dispose of it properly. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), you should ROTATE masks for up to 72 hours, and keep them dry and stored in an OPENED Zip Lock bag or brown paper bag when not in use. Be sure to discard masks in the trash after being used three times or if becomes wet or damaged. Sealing the trash and taking it out to your trash bin immediately is also a best practice.
