At Robert A. Foster, Jr. DMD PC, we are committed to making sure our team and dental family stays healthy. Therefore, we think that wearing a mask when you are not able to be socially distant is just the right thing to do.

But, in order for the mask to do its job, it must be worn properly. Here are some pointers from the CDC to help you.

• Wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth to help protect others in case you’re infected with COVID-19 but don’t have symptoms
•Wear a face covering in public settings when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when it may be difficult for you to stay six feet apart
•Wear a face covering correctly for maximum protection
• Don’t put the face covering around your neck or up on your forehead
• Don’t touch the face covering, and, if you do, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer to disinfect​

When you properly wear a mask, you protect others from the COVID-19
