Lee Health offers information on mask etiquette and care
Lee Health is offering information and tips on mask etiquette and care in a blog post on its website.
The health care system posted helpful graphics along with vital information on how to properly wear your mask, how to clean and care for your masks, which masks are best for you to use and other tips and tricks.
Lee Health says to make sure you are wearing your mask properly by covering both your mouth and nose and refrain from touching the covering.
Remember when you return home, you must remove your mask carefully, washing cloth coverings after each use and throwing out disposable ones.
As for which mask is best, Lee Health says your safest bet is a cloth mask, but still say surgical masks and bandanas are better than nothing.
Finally, to properly care for your cloth masks, you can just toss them in with your usual laundry.
Combined with regularly sanitizing our hands and social distancing, we can all help slow the spread of a pandemic that continues to infect people all over the world and right here in Southwest Florida.
