Face masks are one way to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19, but they are only effective if worn correctly. 

Face masks are important accessories that are used for preventing the spread of viruses. They can also be called dental masks, isolation masks, layer masks, medical masks, procedure masks, or surgical masks. Face masks are not too tight a face mask must cover the nose and mouth completely. They usually have ear loops or ties and straps that go around the head. There are many different types and styles and range from all different colours for you to choose from.

Using a face mask helps limit spreading viruses. When a person speaks, coughs or sneezes they may release drops into the air that infects everyone around them.  When someone is ill a face mask can really reduce spreading the virus. A face mask will protect you from any splashes or sprays of body fluids. 

Always clean your hands with soap and then hand sanitizer before wearing your face mask.

Always make sure there are no tears or holes in either side of your face mask.

Figure out which side of the mask is the top. The side of the face mask that has an edge is the top and is meant to mould to the shape of your nose. 

Determine which side of the face mask is the front part. The coloured side of the face mask is usually the front side and this side should face away from you, while the inside of the face mask touches your face. 

All depending on what type of face mask you are using but a face mask with ear loops. Place a loop around each one of your ears. A face mask that has ties first bring the face mask to your nose level then place the ties over the crown of your head and tie with a bow.

You can mould or pinch the stiff edge to shape your nose so it can fit you properly. Leaving no gaps open for any virus to enter.

When removing a face mask make sure that you clean your hands with soap and water then sanitize your hands before touching your face. Do not touch the front of your face mask. The front of the mask would be contaminated with a virus only, always touch the ear/head strap and gently lift and remove the mask from your face.

Unless you are medical professional, the chances of you ever having to wear a face mask has been rare, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, face masks are highly recommended in fighting the virus the COVID-19.
