Wearing a mask is compulsory in closed public places and soon from the 5th year of elementary school everywhere in Quebec. CHIP 101.9 spoke with Myriam Brin, a nursing advisor at the Centre de santé et de services sociaux de l’Outaouais (CISSSO). She recalled that it is necessary to make sure to wear the mask properly, below the chin to above the nose and to handle it with care.
Myriam Brin explained that it is important to preserve the mask in a plastic bag before use and to put it in another bag intended for the masks that have been used and then wash them. She also insisted not to touch the mask directly if it was to be replaced, but to handle it with the rubber bands on each side.
