Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer each time you put on and remove the covering. Hands should also be washed after removing the face covering. People should avoid touching their faces and the face coverings while wearing them.
Do not put a used face covering in places where others can touch them or where germs trapped in your face covering can touch other surfaces, such as counter tops or your kitchen table.
Do not throw your face covering loose into a bag or backpack. Store your face covering in a paper bag if you will be taking if off when outside the house.
