How to Wear Cloth Face Coverings

    Cloth Face Coverings Should:

  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Include multiple layers of fabric
  • Allow for breathing without restriction
  • Be able to be laundered routinely and machine dried without damage or change to shape




  • Tips for Wearing Cloth Masks:

  • Make sure your mask is not too loose; it should fit snugly around your nose and face.
  • Once your mask is in place, DO NOT:
    • Pull it down around your chin
    • Touch your mask in the front
    • Have your mask drop down below your nose
  • When removing your mask, do so by grabbing the ear straps and appropriately washing or storing your mask.
