Proper Usage of Face Masks to Protect Against COVID-19

N95 face maskThis document from the Food and Beverage Industry Alliance is intended to provide useful advice and recommendations on the proper use of face masks/coverings used to cover the mouth and nose (“half-mask” as opposed to “full-face” masks) to either protect the wearer or protect people to which the wearer is exposed.

However, it is important to recognize that the best way to prevent exposure to the new coronavirus is through a combination of good practices, including hand hygiene, physical (social) distancing and use of a face coveringwhen appropriate. Use of a face mask/covering MUST NOT take the place of proper hand hygiene and physical distancingbut be used in addition to these critical practices.

Read the guidance here.
