How to Properly Wear Your Face Covering

Help stop the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a face covering. Governor Steve Sisolak mandated all Nevadans and visitors wear a mask or face covering in all public spaces, including outside when six feet of social distancing is not possible. UNLV requires all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to its campuses to wear face coverings when in public spaces. Face coverings help protect yourself and others from the spread of germs and bacteria. To wear your mask properly be sure to: - Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after you place your face covering. - Place the straps around your ears to cover your nose, mouth, and chin. - It should be snug, but you should still be able to breathe comfortably. - Wear in public places including hallways, restrooms, and shared workspaces. - When removing your covering, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. - Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth and the front of the face covering.
