Safety & Care Instructions for Fabric Face Masks


  • We recommend that each individual have at least 2 masks. Depending on your routine and habits, you may want to have a larger set.

  • Fabric masks are reusable, but each person should have their own designated mask

  • Children under 2 years old: face masks should NOT be used

  • Children ages 2 and up: supervise at all times when they are wearing a mask 

  • People that should not wear a mask: anyone who has trouble breathing, is unable to remove a mask without assistance, or is unconscious.

  • Per CDC and PA State recommendations, wear a mask:

    • At all times outside of your home 

    • Inside your home if you are coughing or sneezing 

  • Face masks are not a substitute for continuing to maintain physical distancing, proper hand hygiene, and avoiding face contact — in combination with these intervention measures, face masks can help reduce community spread

  • Masks must be changed frequently

    • Each time you put on a mask, you must use a clean mask 

    • Decide on how many masks you need for yourself based off of how much you are outside your home

    • Masks must be changed:

      • After every use

      • Every four hours

      • After sneezing or significantly coughing in mask

      • If inside of mask becomes moist or wet 

  • Filters: At this time, we do not recommend the use of a filter. There are no filter materials that we have approved as safe. 


  • As mentioned above, at this time, there are no confirmed sterilization guidelines for reusable cloth face masks. While our safety team continues reviewing the available research and guidance, you may reference the articles below.

  • Due to fire safety concerns, DO NOT use a microwave or oven to sterilize masks 

  • Some masks have a nose wire, which should be shaped to the bridge of the nose to provide an improved fit for further protection from droplet spread, and to reduce fogging of glasses.  If a mask has a channel that allows for the wire to be inserted, it should be removed prior to cleaning.

Before using the fabric mask remember:

  1. Throughly wash and clean the mask before wearing it.
  2. Wash your hands thoroughly before wearing the mask.
  3. As soon as the bask becomes damp or humid, switch to another mask and clean the used mask.
  4. Never reuse a mask after single use without cleaning it.

 Wearing a face mask:

  1. Make sure the mask fits tightly across your face and extends below your chin.
  2. Do NOT wear mask below your nose, leave your chin exposed, or push mask under chin or on top of head temporarily, and then put it back.
  3. Avoid touching the mask while using it; if you need to adjust the mask after putting it on, disinfect your hands first.

When removing the mask:

  1. Do not touch the front or any other surface of the mask, remove it only with strings behind
  2. After removal, immediately clean your hands with 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer or with soap and water for 40 seconds
  3. Drop it directly into a soap solution and clean thoroughly with soap and water

 Do not wear a face mask that:

  1. Doesn't fully cover both the nose and mouth

  2. Has stretched out or damaged ties/straps that don't hold the mask in place

  3. Does not stay on the face

  4. Has holes or tears in the fabric
