8What is the proper way to put on a surgical mask?
  • Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before touching the mask.
  • Remove a mask from the box and make sure there are no obvious tears or holes on either side of the mask.
  • The side of the mask that has a stiff bendable edge is the top and is meant to mold to the shape of your nose.
  • The colored side of the mask is the front and should face away from you, while the white side touches your face. The white layer is an absorbent material, to absorb the humidity and mucus. Both the middle and colored outer layers are water-repellent to prevent any fluids from being absorbed into the mask.
  • Hold the mask by the ear loops. Place a loop around each ear.
  • Mold or pinch the stiff edge to the shape of your nose.
  • Pull the bottom of the mask over your mouth and chin.
