VILLAGE VIDEO: Wearing face masks on your neck and other PPE don’ts

How to properly put on, wear and remove face masks and disposable gloves

Many Ontario stores and businesses have been given the green light to reopen their doors as part of Premier Doug Ford's plans to ease COVID-19 restrictions

Although the economy is slowly opening back up, health officials are advising the public to take precautions when they must go out.  

While physical distancing remains your best defence against COVID-19, if you find yourself in a situation where keeping the recommended six-foot distance may be a challenge, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) like face masks and gloves can help protect you and others around you — but only if you use them correctly.

Watch the video above as VIllage Media walks you through the steps of donning and doffing your PPE, as recommended by Public Health Sudbury & Districts.

Remember, gloves and masks are not replacements for physical distancing. If you are wearing PPE you should keep two metres apart when you must go out and wash your hands with soap and water frequently.
