(KGET) — The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has released information detailing the proper way to wear face masks and other coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Tips include:

  • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering.
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face.
  • Make sure you can breathe easily.
  • Don’t put the covering around your neck or up on your forehead.
  • Don’t touch the face covering, and if you do, wash your hands.
  • Handle the covering only by the ear loops or ties during removal.
  • Immediately place the covering in the washing machine after use.
