General Safety Protocols
Returning to work on campus will look and feel different from before the pandemic began. Each one of us has a shared responsibility in engaging in behaviors that mitigate the spread of the virus. Therefore, all of us must engage in the safety practices listed below in alphabetical order.
Directions for Use of KN95
- Wash or sanitize your hands immediately before touching your KN95.
- Unfold your mask.
- Place the mask over your face, with the bottom below your chin and the nosepiece up.
- Place the straps of the mask over each of your ears.
- Adjust the metal nose clip using fingers from both hands to mold the clip to the shape of your nose.
- Adjust fit as necessary to reduce air flow around the mask.
- Significant facial hair (more than 3-days growth) adversely effects the ability of the KN95 to form a tight seal around your face and thus reduces the KN95’s effectiveness at protecting you from COVID-19. Therefore, to provide a better fit, parts of your face that come in contact with the KN95 should be free of significant facial hair.
- If you wear glasses and find fogging to be a nuisance, wash the lenses with soapy water and shake off the excess before putting on your mask (wipe off nose piece to minimize skin irritation).
- Wash or sanitize hands after removing the KN95.
