How to Choose a Face Mask
There are a number of considerations to think about when choosing a face mask. Choosing a comfortable fit will reduce the amount you touch your face so get one that will fit you. Choosing a face mask with a replaceable filter can increase your protection in higher risk settings. Choosing a Parisian fashion face mask can be made to match your tie and Hills Hats make masks that can match your cap, allowing your personality to shine through.

The Latest From the Ministry of Health
Here is the latest advice around face masks and COVID-19 from the Ministry of Health.
Read the full guide on how to wear a face mask.
1. Ensure your face mask is clean and dry and is not damaged.
2. Before putting on your face mask, clean your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser (containing at least 60 percent alcohol). Ensure your hands are dry.
3. Place the face mask over your nose and mouth and secure with ties or loops. Make sure the mask fits snugly, moulded to your face and around your nose. Make sure the mask fully covers your nose, mouth and chin. Your mask should be comfortable, with no gaps around the mask and your face, and allow you to breathe easily.
4. Clean your hands again (as above).
