Storing a face mask

The next important thing is to ensure that you store in it a safe and hygienic way.

After each use, carefully remove the face mask from your face by touching only the earloops and fold half and store in a clean disposable/ resealable plastic bag before popping it into your bag. WHO has recommended washing face mask after each use.
