Adjust the elastic ear loops so the perimeter of the mask is snug. Tuck both the filter insert and waterproof fabric behind the elastic at the mask bottom. The filter insert and waterproof fabric should not be showing…this is important! Make sure your entire jaw is covered by the mask to provide maximal protection.

See Fitting Your Mask to insert the filter and properly fit your face mask to get maximal protection from large respiratory droplets and other large molecules.

3 other points to keep in mind when wearing a face mask:

  • Once the mask is fitted properly, avoid touching the mask in order to prevent transferring pathogens to your mask.
  • If you have to touch the mask while you’re wearing it, wash your hands first. And wash your hands after touching your mask or use hand sanitizer if you don’t have access to soap and water.
  • Don’t dangle the mask from one ear.
