Non-medical masks (published by the Alberta Government)
Wearing a non-medical mask, such as a homemade cloth mask, has not been
proven to protect the person wearing it. However, it may be helpful in
protecting others around you.
Face coverings should only be used in addition to other steps to protect
yourself and others from COVID-19. Face coverings are another way to cover
your mouth and nose to prevent respiratory droplets from contaminating other
people or surfaces. Additionally, wearing a mask may stop you from touching
your nose and mouth.
If you choose to use a non-medical face mask:
- you must wash your hands immediately before putting it on and immediately after taking it off (in addition to practicing good hand hygiene while wearing it)
- it should fit well (non-gaping)
- you should not share it with others
Face masks can become contaminated on the outside, or when touched by
your hands. When wearing a mask, take the following precautions to protect
- avoid touching your face mask while using it
- change a cloth mask as soon as it gets damp or soiled
- put it directly into the washing machine or a bag that can be emptied into the washing machine and then disposed of
- cloth masks can be laundered with other items using a hot cycle, and then dried thoroughly.
- non-medical masks that cannot be washed should be discarded and replaced as soon as they get damp, soiled or crumpled
- dispose of masks properly in a lined garbage bin
- do not leave discarded masks in shopping carts, on the ground, etc.
The most important steps you can take to prevent the spread of infection are:
- consistent adherence to good hygiene such as proper hand washing
- following all public health orders
- staying home whenever possible and practicing physical distancing when you need to go out
This is why people who have a cough or respiratory symptoms must wear
masks and wash their hands when visiting an emergency department or clinic.
