  • DO wear a non-medical mask or face covering to protect others.
  • DO ensure the mask is made of at least two layers of tightly woven fabric.
  • DO inspect the mask for tears or holes.
  • DO ensure the mask or face covering is clean and dry.
  • DO wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer before and after touching the mask or face covering.
  • DO use the ear loops or ties to put on and remove the mask.
  • DO ensure your nose and mouth are fully covered.
  • DO replace and launder your mask whenever is becomes damp or dirty.
  • DO wash your mask with hot, soapy water and let it dry completely before wearing it again.
  • DO store re-usable masks in a clean paper bag until you wear it again.
  • DO discard masks that cannot be washed in a plastic lined garbage bin after use.


  • DON'T reuse masks that are moist, dirty or damaged.
  • DON'T wear a loose mask.
  • DON'T touch the mask while wearing it.
  • DON'T remove the mask to talk to someone.
  • DON'T hang mask from your neck or ears.
  • DON'T share your mask.
  • DON'T leave your used mask within the reach of others.

Remember, wearing a non-medical mask or face covering alone will not prevent the spread of COVID-19. You must also wash your hands often, practise physical distancing and stay home if you are sick.

Do your part. Wear a non-medical mask or face covering to protect others when you can't maintain a 2 metre distance.

Non-medical masks are not recommended for:

  • people who suffer from an illness or disabilities that make it difficult to put on or take off a mask
  • those who have difficulty breathing
  • children under the age of 2 years

Don't judge others for not wearing a mask.

Kindness is important as some people may not be able to wear a mask or face covering.
