It is important that when you wear a face covering you do so correctly to protect yourself and others.
To wear a face covering correctly:
> The mask should fit snug on your face.
> Be secured by ties at the back of your head or ear loops.
> Ensure that your mask does not have holes or a valve, or tears or broken loops. This can result in breathing out the virus if you have coronavirus (COVID-19).
> Wash your hands or use 60% hand sanitiser before putting the face mask on and off.
Face coverings can can be single-use (surgical) or reusable/washable cotton masks.
