WHAT: How to safely wear a face covering   


WHERE: Niagara region


WHY: Heading out? Don’t forget your face covering for enclosed public places! Face coverings should cover the nose, mouth, and chin, and there should be as few gaps as possible between the face covering and your face. Clean your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer for at least 20 seconds before putting on or removing your face covering. Face coverings should be removed carefully by grasping the straps. Store your face covering in a clean bag or container until used and put in the laundry after use. If it’s a disposable mask, throw the bag and mask away after use. For more information on how to safely wear a face covering, visit
