How to Safely Put on and Take Off a Face Mask
Face masks can be an effective control measure in a community setting, as well as a healthcare setting, in preventing droplets of bodily fluids from escaping via the nose and mouth.
They protect the wearer against splashes and sprays (sneezes and coughs) from other people, but the face mask must have proper application.
You may be asked to, or choose to, wear a mask to protect yourself and others. We have collaborated with SA Health to understand how to safely put on and take off a mask.
