Ties or ear loops should adequately secure it over your face.

2.

Your mouth and nose need to be covered.

3.

Breathing should not be an issue.

4.

The mask should fit comfortably and also be snug.

5.

It should not be altered or destroyed by washing and drying.

In public areas, the agency adds that anyone over the age of two should cover their face.
