Health organizations also suggest not touching the mask while using it. To get rid of the mask, an individual must do so from behind to avoid touching the front of it. Even if applying a mask sounds simple, some usual and avoidable mistakes are easy to form while putting on one. There is a list of some general considerations for cloth face coverings, suggesting people to:

  • Making sure that the face covering doesn't cause difficulty breathing
  • Keeping in check that the mask covers both the nose and mouth
  • Making sure that someone can tighten or secure the covering to stop it from slipping
  • Putting on the covering snugly
  • Keeping the face masks washed
