This product is NOT Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and should not be used to meet a professional healthcare facility’s obligations to protect workers against infectious disease hazards.
Procedures for cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing this product suggested by the CDC: “A washing machine should suffice in properly washing a face covering.”
- Recommended cleaning instructions: Machine wash warm (40°C) in laundry bag. No fabric softener. Do Not Bleach. Do not tumble dry. When ironing please avoid elastic bands. For best results (longer mask life), hand wash in warm water and hang dry.
- Recommended disinfection instructions (prior to first use; after each use): For home use, submerge this product in hot water for 10 minutes. Hang dry.
Instructions for use: Inspect the Face Mask before each use to ensure that it is in good operating condition. Examine all the parts of the Face Mask for signs of damage including the ear straps and mask materials. Ensure there are no holes in the breathing zone of the mask, no signs of particle shedding, and no other damage. If dizziness, irritation, or other distress occurs, the Face Mask should be removed as soon as it is safe to do so. Face Masks may be used until damaged, breathing becomes difficult, or soiling/contamination occurs. Follow national, state, local and facility infection control guidance and policies. When it is not practical to wear a single Face Mask for the full duration of an activity or work shift, particularly if it becomes wet, soiled, or otherwise visibly contaminated, a clean Face Mask should be used and changed out as needed.
IMPORTANT: Hand hygiene is an important infection prevention and control measure. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after putting on, touching, or removing Face Masks. If you have symptoms and feel sick, stay home. For more information see the CDC’s: Use of Cloth Face Coverings to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19.
Limitations: This Face Mask was not designed to be used by children under the age of 13. Individuals with chronic respiratory, cardiac or other conditions which increase the work of breathing may experience difficulty breathing through Face Masks. Face Masks should never be shared. When not in use, Face Masks must be stored to protect them from damage, contamination, dust, sunlight, extreme temperatures, excessive moisture, and damaging chemicals; in a plastic bag, supplied with each mask.
