To maximize the protection that our masks provide, we recommend following the steps below:
Wash your hands well first of all. Washing your hands is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family so they don't get sick. During the coronavirus 19 disease pandemic (COVID-19), it is particularly important to keep your hands clean to help prevent the spread of the virus primarily at the time of putting on masks.
Key times to wash your hands
You can help keep yourself and your loved ones healthy by washing your hands often, especially during the following key times when you are most likely to get and spread microbes:
Before, during and after preparing food
Before and after caring for someone in your home who is vomiting or has diarrhea
Before and after treating a cut or wound
After going to the bathroom
After changing diapers or cleaning a child who has gone to the bathroom
After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal feces
After handling pet food or treats
After touching the trash
And before putting on the masks
Always follow these five steps:
Wet your hands with clean running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and lather your hands.
Rub your hands together with the soap until it foams. Rub the foam over the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Rub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Do you need something to measure time? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song twice from start to finish.
Rinse your hands well under clean running water.
Dry them with a clean towel or in the air.
