🍎 Today’s Health Question ~ Want to Make Your Surgical Face Mask Fit Tighter?

Here’s How You Do It!

  • Start with clean hands — always wash them before handling a new mask (and after taking off a used one).
  • Fold the mask in half, lengthwise, so that the bottom and top strip are edge-to-edge.
  • Take one ear loop and make a knot as close as possible to the corners of the mask; repeat on the other side.
  • Unfold the mask and adapt the flexible nose bridge to your nose. You will see that the mask puffs out more than before.
  • Fold in the corners and put on your better-fitting mask. Adjust as needed.

A recent study from Duke University measuring the efficacy of 14 types of masks and face coverings found disposable surgical masks worked well to block respiratory particles emitted when people talk.
