How can I wear my face covering safely?
To reduce risks to your health, follow these rules:
• Use a face covering for no more than four hours at a time, then wash in hot water and dry thoroughly before using it again
• Wash hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water before you put on the mask
• Wash hands again after removing the covering. Do not touch the outside front part of the covering as the area is likely to be contaminated
• Face coverings are not 100% effective, so continue to practice social distancing and hand washing when you wear a mask
