Tips for wearing a procedure (surgical) mask

  • Wash your hands before and after putting on the mask.
  • Ensure that the mask covers both the nose and mouth.
  • Pinch the metal clip on the bridge of the nose to secure the mask in place.
  • If you are double masking, wear the cloth mask over the procedure mask.
  • Avoid touching your mask. If you do, wash your hands as soon as possible.
  • Change your mask if it becomes moist, soiled or damaged.
  • Replace your mask at least every four hours.
  • Do not leave the mask hanging from your neck or ear.
