Face Mask Advice
Tips for reusing masks from RegisteredNursing.org:
- Masks may be worn continuously until visibly soiled or moist from breathing.
- When removed and stored, masks should be carefully folded so that the outer surface is held inward and against itself. The folded mask can be stored in a clean, sealable paper bag or breathable container.
