Things to keep in mind while wearing a double mask…
1. Fit ho mask
First and foremost, your mask should not be loose. While wearing the mask, you should take special care that it should fit well, that is, there is no place for air to come from it. So that the virus does not reach your mouth or nose from any corner. If you are wearing a loose mask, then wearing it or not is equal, because you are taking all the things inside you.
2. Cover the nose and mouth
The mask may be tight, but if you are adopting the habit that your mask stays on your chin or comes down from your nose, then this habit is not good. It may be that in the 5 hours you are following the mask completely, but in the same 2 minutes you are facing an infection when you have done the mask down from the mouth or nose.

4. Do not touch again and again
If you do not take care of the first two things, then your hand will automatically go to the mask. But even after taking care of these things, if you touch the habitual mask repeatedly, then avoid this habit. The exterior of the mask may be contaminated and infected. If you touch it again and again, the risk of infection increases. If for some reason you touch it, then sanitize the hands.
5. A Mask, Once
The most important thing is to use a mask only once. Wear a clean mask every time. Do not wear the mask once worn. If it is deposable after using the mask, destroy it and if it is reusable, wash it thoroughly with hot water and soap and dry it in the sun.
