How do I wear a surgical mask?

According to the World Health Organization, before you touch the mask, make sure you’ve cleaned your hands with an alcohol-based sanitiser or soap and water.

Make sure your mouth and nose are covered by the mask and avoid touching the mask while it’s on to avoid contamination. If you do touch it, be sure to clean your hands afterwards.

When you need to take the mask off, be sure not to touch the front of the mask and remove it from the back and discard it as soon as possible.
