Don’t forget to wear your mask – we are still open

We’re open as normal during the Covid shutdown but please remember to wear your mask in the pharmacy. This protects you and of course others.

It’s hard not to touch your face mask once it’s on, but it’s important in preventing the spread of disease.

So how do you avoid touching your mask? The best place to start is with a mask that fits well.

Pinch the wire over your nose so that it fits snugly, and adjust the straps so that they are tight enough to comfortably hold the mask in place over your mouth and nose.

Hint: You might need to tie a loop in the elastic on both sides if it is too long, or snip and re-sew if you are handy with a needle and thread.

And if you absolutely need to adjust your mask or scratch your nose? Thoroughly wash or sanitise your hands immediately afterwards.
