How to Safely Wear Your Face Mask
The CDC recommends these steps to follow when putting on and wearing a face mask:
  • Wash your hands before putting on your face mask 
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face 
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
  • Don’t put the covering around your neck or up on your forehead
  • Don’t touch the face mask, and, if you do, wash your hands
Taking off a face mask:
  • Untie the strings behind your head or stretch the ear loops
  • Handle only by the ear loops or ties
  • Fold outside corners together
  • Place covering in the washing machine
  • Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing and wash hands immediately after removing

Even though Indiana has begun to reopen and loosen restrictions, measures to remain safe are still being upheld. The #MaskUpHoosiers campaign is spreading awareness about face masks and asking citizens to share who they are wearing a mask for. 

A toolkit with logos, profile picture, and customizable signs, is available to download to help get involved and encourage our community to mask up.
