Wearing a facemask

Z

Any home made or purchased face covering should fit over your mouth and nose

Z

There should be minimal gaps

Z

When worn, you should still be able to breathe comfortably

Z

Whilst worn it should be tight to avoid slipping (and therefore you touching your face to readjust!) but not too tight as to cause discomfort

Z

When wearing a face mask, care should be taken to ensure you do not touch your face, just the same as if you were not wearing a mask – don’t get complacent, good hand hygiene is still the most recommended method of preventing spread!

Z

Wearing a mask is not a substitute for good hand hygiene – you should still be washing your hands wish soap and water regularly

Z

Don’t share face masks, even with other members of your household
