WEAR A MASK AND HELP TO PROTECT CAYMAN KIND

It is better to wear a homemade mask than no mask at all.
N95 masks or FFP3 respirators are not the ONLY masks that can help in the pandemic. A homemade mask greatly reduces the risk of spreading infection. Read on to see how to make your own.

WHEN SHOULD I WEAR A PROTECTIVE MASK?

  • When you are around other people in public.
  • Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing, or showing any symptoms.
  • If you suspect you have come into contact with an infected person.
  • If you are looking after someone with health issues or someone elderly.
Need a mask, or have a spare?

Wearing a mask does not prevent you from catching the disease, but it does limit the chances of you passing it on to other people. If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or are showing symptoms, wearing a mask can help to protect others.

MASK-MAKING AND OTHER USEFUL INSTRUCTIONS

The links in this section lead to instructions and videos of how to make a homemade mask. Here are some tips for how to care for your mask during the pandemic:

  • Make sure you boil your mask at a high temperature, and ideally iron it after drying
  • Wash or disinfect your hands before touching your face mask
  • Cover your nose and mouth with your mask, try to minimize any gaps
  • Do not touch your mask with your hands while wearing it
  • If your mask gets wet, replace it
  • Remove your mask by pulling it off by the strings, avoid touching the mask itself
  • Throw away the mask in a closed bin after use

Everything’s different now, it is weird if someone is NOT wearing
a mask. Protect Cayman kind.
