What is the right way to use a cloth face covering? 150 150 Sonoma County Emergency and Preparedness Information
  • When used, cloth face coverings or homemade masks should be:
    • Worn only by one person.
    • Cover the mouth and nose completely.
    • Include multiple layers of fabric.
    • Fitted carefully to prevent frequent adjustment. Remember to practice strict hand washing before and after touching and adjusting the face covering.
    • Washed frequently, ideally after each use, or at least daily. If you must re-wear your cloth face covering before washing during the day, wash your hands immediately after putting it back on and avoid touching your face.
    • Discarded if it no longer covers the nose and mouth, if it is stretched out or damaged and cannot stay on the face or has holes/tears in the fabric.
