Proper Way to Wear it

BRANTFORD – While face coverings are now mandatory in all indoor public spaces throughout the area, experts warn benefits will diminish unless worn correctly.

One local disease specialist is aiming to educate residents throughout the region on proper wear, wash, and storage of reusable face masks.

Dr. Tom Szakacs, Medical Director of Infection Prevention and Control Program at Brantford General Hospital, says we are better protected when face masks are worn and handled correctly.
