Recommendations on Mask Usage from the NYC Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner

Recommendations on Mask Usage from Dr. Chokshi, head of the NYC Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene

The subject of facial covering/mask usage was brought up during NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s press conference today.

“A face covering can include any well secured disposable mask or cloth that covers your nose and mouth. A disposable mask – like this one – can be reused. But you should immediately replace it if it becomes damaged, dirty, or wet. For a cloth mask or face covering – like this one – I have some simple recommendations. Use it for a day, hand wash it with soap and water. Make sure you dry it completely after doing so and rotate your supply,” said Commissioner Dave Chokshi.

“Have more than one so that you can alternate them. Most importantly, choose a face covering that fits snugly against the sides of your face and that completely covers your nose and mouth. Don’t share them and store them somewhere where they won’t be touched. And don’t use a mask with an exhalation valve as it allows unfiltered air to escape. “
