COVID-19 | WHY YOU NEED TO WEAR A FACE MASK

 
News : 25 Apr 2020 285 Viewed By NoordNuus reporter 0

A face mask helps to reduce the droplets that escape into the air or fall onto surfaces after coming out of your mouth or nose when you speak, cough or sneeze. You may not know that you have caught COVID-19. Some people who catch it never show any symptoms, and everyone who catches it can pass it on before symptoms develop.

Protect those around you by wearing a face mask to catch droplets from your mouth or nose and stop them from getting into the air or onto surfaces.

 

HOW TO USE A FACE MASK
You can spread COVID-19 by handling your mask the wrong way.

  • You need two cloth face masks, so that you have one to use when the other is in the wash.
  • Use at least three layers of fabric to make your mask.
  • Do not share face masks.
  • Before putting on a mask and after removing one, wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based sanitiser.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with the mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask.
  • Do not touch the mask while using it. If you do, clean your hands with alcohol-based sanitiser or soap and water immediately.
  • Remove the mask from behind your ears. Do not touch the front or the inside of the mask.
  • Do not lower your face mask when speaking, coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash your cloth mask in soap and hot water immediately after using it, dry it in the sun if possible, and iron it well before using it again.
