ELDO Advise on The Basics on How to Properly Wear a Mask in COVID-19

ELDO is a business that primarily manufactures disposable wipes. In 2007, the product range expanded to include disposable vinyl gloves. Now, the company also provides disposable latex gloves, and since the COVID-19 crisis, disposable face masks.

Mask manufacturers, ELDO are happy to pass on some advice on how to properly wear a mask in COVID-19, explaining that masks  should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save lives; the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection against COVID-19. 


If COVID-19 is spreading in your community, stay safe by taking some simple precautions, such as physical distancing, wearing a mask, keeping rooms well ventilated, avoiding crowds, cleaning your hands, and coughing into a bent elbow or tissue. Check local advice where you live and work. Do it all! 


Make wearing a mask a normal part of being around other people. The appropriate use, storage and cleaning ordisposal of masks are essential to make them as effective as possible. 


Clean your hands before you put your mask on, as well as before and after you take it off, and after you touch it at any time. 

• Make sure it covers both your nose, mouth and chin.  
• When you take off a mask, store it in a clean plastic bag, and every day either wash it if it’s a fabric mask, or dispose of a medical mask in a trash bin. 
• Don’t use masks with valves. Masks with vents or exhalation valves are not advised because they allow unfiltered breath to escape the mask. 


Regarding children, there may be local requirements for children aged 5 years and under to wear masks, or specific needs in some settings, such as being physically close to someone who is ill. In these circumstances, if the child wears a mask, a parent or other guardian should be within direct line of sight to supervise the safe use of the mask.
