How to Wear a Mask Correctly – Which Side on the Outside?

As one of the precautions to deal with the spread of Wuhan coronavirus, many people buy and wear masks to prevent contracting this possibly fatal virus. However, what’s the correct way to wear a mask? Make sure you read on to find out how to wear a mask correctly.

Show Your Colours

The only correct way to wear a surgical mask is with the coloured side facing outside. Usually surgical masks come with two sides, the darker and lighter side. Make sure you wear it with the coloured side facing outside. Just remember, always show your colours!

Check the White Line

If your masks do not have the darker and lighter side, make sure you check the white line on the mask. Just remember that the white line should be on the outside. So wear your mask properly!

Check the Two Strings

You can also check the two strings on your mask to make sure that you wear your mask correctly. The two strings should be on the inside of your mask like below.

Again, Show Your Colours!

If your masks are as colourful as the rainbow, fret not! Just show your colours by wearing them with the coloured side facing outwards.

Check the Creases

If the creases are inward, it’s the outside. Wear it facing outwards.
