How to Safely Wear and Take Off a Mask | Covid-19

August 28, 2020

Covid-19 has been found to spread mainly from person to person via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends wearing face masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with every day preventive actions and social distancing in public settings.

Here are some guidelines on how to properly wear and take off a mask.


  • Wash your hands before putting on your mask
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
  • Do not place a mask on a child younger than 2


  • Wear a mask to help protect others in case you’re infected but don’t have symptoms
  • Keep the mask on your face the entire time you’re in public
  • Don’t put the mask around your neck or up on your forehead
  • Don’t touch the mask, and, if you do, clean your hands


  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Wash your hands often, with soap and water, for at least
  • 20 seconds each time
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available


  • Untie the strings behind your head or stretch the ear loops
  • Handle only by the ear loops or ties
  • Fold outside corners together
  • Place mask in the washing machine
  • Wash your hands with soap and water

Sam admitted to Highlands Nursing and Rehab due to the progression of Parkinson’s disease. With speech therapy, Sam went from pureed diet and nectar thick liquids to now being on a regular diet and thin liquids. His cognition has become more clear and improved his memory and his ability to carry conversations and let his needs known. With occupational and physical therapy, Sam is currently dressing himself and preforming other daily tasks independently. Sam continues to participate in therapy to further progress his ambulation and mobility without any devices. He is well on his way to reach that goal! Congrats Sam on all your successes!

Mr. Malone came to Highlands for short term rehab after a hospital stay. He was previously living by himself so his goals were to be independent, safe, and return to his active lifestyle. With the help of our physical, occupational, and speech therapy, Mr. Malone has progressed to using a cane from a walker and even starting to ambulate without any devices! He continues to work on stair management. He is independent in his ADLs, medication management, and working on meal preparation. With the help from our social worker, community resources are being setup for a safer and more independent way of life. He is scheduled to go back home soon! Congratulations, Mr. Malone!
