How to wear a mask
A mask can provide the protection if it is worn properly.
This means there should be no gap along the edges of the mask between the face and the mask and that the mask should cover from the bridge of the nose to the jawline/chin. It is vital that the mask covers not only the mouth but also the nose. To guarantee adequate coverage of the nose, masks should not be worn below or at the tip of the nose.
