- Bring the mask to the face, level with the bridge of your nose.
- Hold the mask from the outside and place a loop around each ear, without crossing them over. Pull the bottom of the mask over your lower face to ensure that the mask covers the chin.
- Mould or pinch the stiff upper edge to the shape of your nose. Check that the face mask is positioned correctly. This requires ensuring that the mask fits snugly and there is no breathing discomfort.

HOW TO WASH AND DRY THE FACE MASK
Wash and dry the mask according to the manufacturers directions. Complete a full wash cycle to include regular detergent, wash, and rinse at 60 °C (140 °F). Avoid contact and cross contamination between used face masks yet to be washed and clean clothes.
The person in charge of washing must be protected when handling used face masks. Don´t use products that may degrade or damage the materials and reduce their protective properties. Completely dry the face mask within 2 hours of washing it.

Visually inspect the mask after each washing cycle with protective gloves or clean hands. If any damage to the mask is detected including loose fit, deformation, or wear and tear, the mask must be discarded.
DISPOSING OF THE FACE MASK
Once the face mask has reached the maximum stipulated washing cycles, it should be discarded to reduce the risk of infection. Procedure for safe disposal of the face mask: the masks should be placed in a plastic bag and disposed of in a trash bin, preferably with a hands-free lid.

For reasons of comfort and hygiene, it is recommended not to use the face mask for more than 4 consecutive hours. If the mask becomes wet or damaged with use, it should be replaced. During use, the mask must only be removed following the previous instructions.
