Stay safe out there
In addition to preventive measures like staying home, washing your hands for 20 seconds and maintaining social distance, a fabric face mask can help reduce the amount of coronavirus or flu virus droplets in the air. It can also keep you from touching your face after potential contact with contaminated surfaces.
Here's how to best use your fabric face mask to stay safe:
- Wash your mask before you use it, and again after every use.
- Iron or steam your mask: this is the best way to disinfect it.
- Cover your mouth and nose completely.
- Do not lower the mask to speak, cough or sneeze.
- Don't touch your mask, especially not on the inside.
- Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap when you remove the mask.
- Wash the masks with warm soapy water and iron dry.
- Have an extra mask for when the other one is in the wash.
These are just some of the many ways Discovery is working to help keep you safe. Stay home. Stay healthy. Stay rewarded.
