Show full transcript for Using Masks Correctly video

After the COVID-19 outbreak, more people have started to wear face masks. These masks come in different types and styles, but will only be effective if you use them correctly.

You need to ensure you have applied the mask correctly, ensuring it is not upside down, or inside out, otherwise it will not work as well. Ensure both your mouth and nose are covered, and never touch the mask unless you are removing it. You should also never share your mask.

Remember, always inspect your mask before putting it on, store unused masks in a clean, dry place, and properly dispose of your mask after a single use.

And always wash your hands before and after using a mask.
